Like her predecessor, EMMA MÆRSK, ESTELLE MÆRSK will be part of the series of the world’s largest container vessels. Ships in this series will 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, ESTELLE 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.
ESTELLE MÆRSK will be registered in Hellerup and will be commanded by Captain Lars Peter Jensen with Torben Jørgensen as Chief Engineer.
