|Today's update on the first vessel of the new generation of Maersk Triple E container vessels, supposedly bulkier, slower and uglier than the first series (but will prob'ly make more money, so you know who'll get the girl...) :)
Aft superstructure has been installed, and her hull is being completed by adding the fore part. Floating out is still scheduled for beginning of December, I guess.

Oh, dear... The Gcaptain article simply copies the original news and STILL manages to get a lot of things wrong :-) (mixing up rows and bays, hull depth vs on-deck tiers, etc.) |
Only been away 2 days and the bow followed by the funnels now fitted. |
Thanks for the picture, Jan, I guess it doesn't look so bad then... :)
Vald, regarding the bays, it will look something like this: https://abload.de/img/jant_shipspotting800eo6zjg.jpg
I prepared this drawing for our weekly newsletter.
Jan, at first I had no recollection of entering "Madrid Maersk", but then I checked the entry form and, sure enough... Anyway, the admins have corrected it.
Roy, the 40' bay sequence of 6+13+5 is unusual, and Maersk is the first to try it. On paper, it looks...weird. I will see, anyway.
I'm sure you keep us updated.
Understand that the (40ft) bay sequence will be 6, 13 and 5 for the new ones instead of the 8,10 and 6 for the 'old' ones.
It will be a long walk from the accommodation to the engine-room.

Maersk Madrid? Or did you mean Madrid Maersk? |
