Follow us on Facebook for more news about Maersk and Maersk Jobs:
While the new Triple-E class is only a few meters longer and wider than the current world record holder in size, it offers no less than 16 per cent more container space due to its wider, more bulbous bow.
The wide body allows room for an additional row of containers.
Moving the bridge forward improves the line of sight and makes it possible to stack containers higher,
Moving the engine backwards increases stability and allows for more containers below and above deck,
It all adds up to a 16% capacity improvement over the previous world record, and contributing to the 50% decrease in co2 emissions making the Triple-E the most advanced and efficient ship in the world.
