tonker on Feb 27, 2013 08:03 (7 years ago)
Thanks EEE spoil, i appreciate your help. Also, yeah i agree with you regarding calling the ship a he instead of a she,haha!
eee-spoil on Feb 25, 2013 12:24 (7 years ago)
tonker- Tripple M delivery is scheduled for Mid-End June this year, maybe a bit longer if he (cant really see this as the standard she) makes a bachelor voyage before loading.
tonker on Feb 24, 2013 05:06 (7 years ago)
Does anyone know when she`s due to enter service? Thanks.

Thanks Ozzy76 and Rick, never heard that expression before and couldn't imagine what it might mean in that context (translated 1:1 into German it doesn't make sense at all:-)...
Rick Vince on Feb 21, 2013 11:27 (7 years ago)
Jens you did not sound dumb at all - your command of English (& English humour)is exceptional.
Maersk like to keep big secrets from the outside world, even the *actual* teu capacity of the Emma Maersk Class of ships, as well as what the name of the first Triple E would be.
By revealing it to the world - Maersk's element of surprise - their "thunder has been stolen".
Thank you to Ozzy76 for the explanation too
Regards, Rick
ozzy76 on Feb 20, 2013 21:55 (7 years ago) steal someone's thunder means to spoil a surprise or to upstage somebody..In this case a great shot of Maersk's Triple M's or E's before Maersk unveiled them...Like a SPY shot :-)))

Hopefully several those boxers won't flood the Netherlands eventually.
Jens Boldt on Feb 20, 2013 20:41 (7 years ago)
It may sound dumb, but as a non-native speaker... What's Maersk's thunder? I don't understand "thunder" in that context...:-(
ozzy76 on Feb 20, 2013 18:23 (7 years ago)
Great catch Iappino..Can't wait to see it launched.
The Foscile looks the same as the other DSME ships for Maersk

Thanks, Rick!

The rest of the series is, maybe:

$190m for 18,000TEU seems expensive as newbuilding of 10,000TEU is below $90m by the end of 2012.
lappino on Feb 20, 2013 12:54 (7 years ago)
With this photo quality I think Maersk should have no fear of stealing its thunder...
There are quite a few blocks for sister vessels around in Daewoo shipyard, and in the floating dock nearby (not shown on the picture) is the next hull, minus the forward part...
Rick Vince on Feb 20, 2013 12:40 (7 years ago)
Naughty boy lappino - you have stolen Maersk's thunder....Triple E will henceforth be known as Triple M! Note also, at 90 degrees to the new Maersk ship, immediately to the left side of the accomodation, is a hull section of the next sister vessel. Note it's gaping width.. Regards Rick
Pilot Frans on Feb 20, 2013 12:38 (7 years ago)
