Namegiving of newbuilding L 208 from Odense Steel Shipyard

On Saturday 25 August 2007 Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group.

Mrs Leise Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller honoured A.P. Moller - Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding ELLY MÆRSK.

Like her five predecessors, ELLY MÆRSK will be part of the series of the world’s largest container vessels, and she will like her sister vessels set new standards for safety and environment. Environmentally friendly silicone paint covers the hull of the vessel below the waterline – reducing water resistance and cutting the vessel’s fuel consumption by 1,200 tonnes per year.

With her 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, ELLY MÆRSK will after delivery enter Maersk Line’s worldwide service and thereby together with the other vessels contribute to a global, competitive and flexible transport for the Company’s customers.

ELLY MÆRSK will be registered in Svendborg and will be commanded by Captain Poul Buchholz Hansen with Jan Niemann Kristensen as Chief Engineer.
