THE 18,000-TEU Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller, one of the world's largest containerships, made its maiden call at Singapore, where it discharged 3,500 TEU on its way back from Europe.
The ship is deployed on Maersk Line's AE-10 service connecting Asia to northern Europe.
The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller measures 400 metres long, 59 metres wide and 73 metres high, and is the first of 20 such Triple E ships to be delivered to Maersk Line. Five Triple-E vessels will be delivered this year and the remaining ships will be delivered in 2014 and 2015. The vessels are being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME).
