Shipping News and information / Revival of the SeaLand brand
« on: January 09, 2014, 09:24:04 AM »
Maersk has announced that 01 January 2015 a new intra-American feeder line will be launched
under the brand of SeaLand. Same concept as MCC in Asia and Seago Line in Europe. The new
feeder company will cover all Americas. The new organisation will be active 01 July 2014, will be headquartered in USA and have a staff of 240.

The start-up of the New SeaLand in 2015 will probably coincide will MSC taking the position as the world's No 1 container line. At least the figures of Alphaliner's "Top 100" point
in that direction.

Creator and webmaster Micke Asklander has decided to close this excellent
website after 15 years due to the heavy work load involved, according

Lots of thanks to Micke.


Shipping News and information / No noses anymore on 10 Maersk ships
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:17:19 AM »
10 vessels of the BOSTON and STEPNICA-CLASS (5 of each) are in the process of having their bulbs cut off at the Chinese Qingdao shipyard. The objective is to save 5% fuel as the bulbs instead of reducing drag at the design speed of 25 knots or more actually increase drag at the  lower speed of the slow steaming mode.  
MAERSK BUFFALO and MAERSK BALTIMORE have already had the cut, and have now been Danish registered with the names of SEAGO BREMERHAVEN and SEAGO ANTWERP indicating that they will now be serving the European short sea strings of SEAGO LINE.
So what have we now: the most powerful coasters in the European waters ! Especially sad to see the BOSTON-ships reduced to nothing. Apparently they have even had some new paint on the funnels.
For a photo check
For more photos of the process go to the last line of the text and click "HER" - which actually means "HERE"


Correction: Still some noses around. On go to the flickr-logo. The comments to some of the 11 photos indicate that new redesigned low-speed noses have been added to the ships. By the way a lot of interesting photos on the Maersk Line Flickr in case you should not have noticed yet.
