So which "new" containership class is this, please enlighten us more?

Maersk have not ordered any newbuild containerships since 2008, when they ordered a series of 4500 teu panamaxes and another of 7450 teu post-panamaxes.

I imagine this is just a spurious rumour based on something that Maersk might be considering for the future.

Hi

I beleive this is old news! This was brought up somtime ago on this website. From what i

remember was that the only ports that could cater for such vessels were in the far east

and the english channel was not deep enough for them to pass through. So would be pointless

I think in this current economic climate it won't happen

With newbuilding prices stabilising at levels more attractive to buyers, some owners are dipping their toes in the water once again with ultra large boxship orders, the latest being Zodiac who just last month ordered a series of 13,000 teu ships from STX. It's inevitable that in the long term, the ULCs will continue to reign as their economies of scale are so advantageous. Already there are designs on the table for 20,000+ teu vessels which remain within the current draft boundary of about 15 - 15.5 metres, enabling them to operate on the current FE/Europe/US routes. It's not inconceivable that Maersk are considering 18,000 teu vessels - or even larger - but there's no newbuilding contracts signed yet.

I think the english channel will be no problem,because the ships will never come fully loaded to Europe.
Even the biggest Bulk Carriers are coming to Rotterdam (Berge Stahl,Margot N).
I have seen that the
CSCL ordert 8 ULCC
UASC have also ordert ULCC,
CSAV will also recieve soon 12.500 Teu containervessel
The only rumours are that Maersk ask some shipyards about 16.000 teu ships.
APL has ordert 10.700 teu ships and Evergreen has ordert 20X 8.900 Teu Ships.

Regads,

Under www.asiasis.com you can read more about the expected order of 20 18000TEU LNG powered vessels by Maersk.
The investment should be around 4 bn US$ and should be fixed until end of the year, if I understand correct.
I think, this will become interesting ships.

Thanks for the link Julian. Very interesting. As I thought, very much a rumour at this stage with no official word from Maersk, though the Korean yards are clearly getting quite excited at the prospect.

Phil,  it is not exactly a rumour! It is known that Mærsk will reduce their ships in the Middle- and Far East, but they had to transport their quota as in contracts. That only means one thing! Yes. Bigger ships.
To reduce costs of ever blowing up oil prices, they searched for another propulsion and that is LPG.
As you might remember they placed the newbuilding E-types in the 10.000 TEU class however they where build for 12.000 TEU. Now they asked some yards for prices ships up till 16.000 TEU and press (rumours) make it a 18.000! That is also what Dave mentioned.
Not one order is placed at the moment, so let's see what comes up?

As has been discussed "Pepper", Maersk have yet to make a final decision. Should they place a  contract for these ships, and with LNG powered engines, they will be the first large containerships so fitted.

It does not surprise me at all that this is already being talked about even if its only a rumour at present.
Maersk Line has always led the way in container ship design and size, although the economic situation isnt the best at the moment shipping lines must look to the future.

It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds, one thing though what ever teu capacity is quoted by Maersk you can be sure that the vessels will actually be able to carry more as they always under declare the capacity of their vessels, in the late 90's Regina Maersk and her sistersuwere quoted as being 6000teu but are nearer to 8000teu, the PS class ie Emma Maersk etc were quoted as 12000teu but are nearer to 14000teu.

Presumably because they require them for a specific route which demands a smaller size. Lots of 7,000 - 8,000 teu ships are currently being built for various operators. These ships normally fit into the secondary-string routes for which the ULCs are not suitable.
