|"Mumbai Maersk" is the latest Triple E Mk. 2 afloat, and she joins the other 4 Maersk behemots afloat at Daewoo shipyard. Seems like Maersk has a plan to hit the container market with 100.000+ TEU of new tonnage when it receives all the ships simultaneously... :)
Also, note that the "Royal Dock No. 5" is empty, as the last Triple E vessel will be assembled in dry dock. It all just means that there are not enough newbuilding hulls to play around with at the shipyard.
Edit: RD5 dock will still be the cradle of the last Triple E Mk. 2; it's just that I took the photo on the day that "Mumbai Maersk" was floated out, and they didn't have the time to get the new blocks in... :)

Thanks for your comment, Roy. Funny thing for MSC vessels, with keels laid back in 2015, to be delivered only in 2019... ;)

Thanks for the update, and the new MSC ships only to be delivered in 2019.
