Does anyone have any information regarding the latest ship under construction at Maersk's Odense shipyard? It is considerably larger than the last hull built.

Hi, The latest vessel is hull no. L207 and is due for delivery end of july.

She seems considerably larger. However, the length of the bridge wings may deceive us a little bit, since it seems the body of the superstructure is somewhat slimmer than on the previous ships.

I look forward to seeing her float. I assume this page and www.jtashipphoto.dk are likely places to get pictures of her when launched.

Best regards

Hi Mats.

Yes jtashipphoto.dk will be on the place when the new (#L203) Leave the Odense Steelshipyard Lindo.
I live only 70 km from the yard and i will drive over there and sleep in my car to be the first to stand in the water at get photos of this "the BIG MAMA of containervessels"

Baselss rumour here says that she will be around 390m to 397 m in Length, and around 55m in width and around 22m depth, and from keel to mast around 70m.
My guess in my fantasy is that she maybe can carry around 13.000 - 14.000 Teu`s.

It did only takes 8 weeks to build the hull, and that is more fast then some af the big shipyards in asia, fantastic work they make on Odense Steelshipyard Lindo.
Hope that this great and only newbuilding shipyard "in that size" here in Denmark will build many more ships in the future.
Will be on the spot and if i now the date i will post it in here if enyone will join me on the beach outside the Odense Steelshipyard Lindo.

Best regards

Hi all,

This is indeed a larger container vessel than the G-class of Maersk. The propeller shaft’s length must have an enormous length, but as far as I know the largest are at the moment on the S-class of Wagenborg (The RoRo-carriers Spaarneborg, Schieborg and Slingeborg) with a total length over the 135 metres. These vessels have one engine wit a total engine output of 11.950 kW. But this is in no comparison to the engines in the mega container carriers, what torsion and forces concerns. The smaller the engines, shafts and propellers, the easier to structure and design.

It looks like the superstructure of this vessel is situated amidships, but in that case I wonder why the accommodation has 11 or 12 decks (without topdeck). This because the sight-line from the bridgedeck is only 1,5 times the total length of the ship in front of the bow. This means the crew can see the water in front of the vessel (when fully loaded with containers) at 1,5 times the ship length in front of the bow. So, when the superstructure is situated amidships, then why 11 or 12 decks? This because the maximum of 6 containertiers without cellguiding.

Furthermore I think this vessel has one engine, because I see one funnel with one smoke pipe. When two engines a vessel has always two smoke pipes situated in one or more funnels.

If one engine is placed, it’s explaining why the engine is situated amidships. The streamline of the water to the propeller must be optimal designed, because the biggest engine in the world delivers ‘only’ 100.000 BHP (78000 kW). The size of the engine is (LxBxH) 25x11x16 metres and a weight over 2200 tones. No containervessel with a beam less than 60 metres can have two of these engines beside each other. Imagine the longitudinal and transversal strength you need in the construction of this vessel by two engines: 4400 tonnes (without superstructure) over a total length of 25 metres is almost impossible.

The beam of this ship can be 60 metres, because the new generation container cranes can handle container vessels with a beam of 60 metres, but at the moment there are a few ports in the world that have these cranes. A beam larger than 45 metres is possible, but the most ports can’t handle them yet.

About the draught: for now a draught of 15 or 18 metres is accepted for containervessels by almost all large (container) ports. I guess the maximum draught is something larger than the 15 metres from the 9000 TEU-vessels. A depth of 22 metres looks to me not very much; I think a depth of 25 to 30 metres is more reliable.

All kind of things; it is a very interesting vessel: design, structure, propulsion etcetera. So keep posting us from pictures and further information!

Keep up the good work!

Dear Bjarne,

I found your picture of the tug "Urd" and the new Mærsk vessel in the background HERE. Since the superstructure is not yet placed on the vessel in your picture, I assume it must have been taken some weeks back.

I note that you live in Odense. Any chance you could get us an updated picture of the new Mærsk vessel as she looks today?

Best regards

Dear all,
This morning I visited HP of Odense Steel Shipyard,

I translated it to English by using translation soft,

Does someone know this accident?

Local news (www.fyens.dk) reports that firefighters worked all night from 20.00 till 9.00.

It still looks from the pictures at www.112-odense.dk that most of the deckhouse is destroyed. The bridge is definitely gone, but it looks like there where fires on the lower decks as well.

The engine casing seems to be damaged too.
This must delay her for sevaral month. Guess next delivery from the yard is going to bee the L-204   :-(

Had really been looking forward to see her leave.

Very sad to see, indeed! Hopefully they can use parts and modules destined for L204 on this one in stead, so that she will not be too much delayed.

According to a Danish newspaper, she is rumoured to be able to carry 22 containers across the deck. I believe the latest vessel, L202 "Georg Mærsk" can "only" carry 17. Pictures of her here: http://www.jtashipphoto.dk/jtashipphoto.dk%201/Christian%20Hansen/georg_maersk.htm

It is in deed sad what happened to her...  :cry:

The superstructure can be re-used or will they need to re-built it all over again?

Does she have only one propeller? A ship this size, wouldnt it be better if she has two propellers? Why do some ships have one while others have two or even three?

Kindest regards,
Pedro

The accomodation will probably be reused. The structure itself does not look too damaged.

Only one propeller. The reason? to cut maintenance, weight and expences.

I am not qualified for giving any long lecture on why. But you can be sure of that APM got its reasons to chose a single engine/prop instead of a twin screw.

The news from Maersk Lines' Western Operations Centre is that the predicted delay on delivering the vessel will be 6-8 weeks. As the L-203 phases into the AE1 service then the Axel Maersk will phase out.
