Maersk Line’s 11 second generation Triple-E class vessels, due to be delivered from April next year through to May 2018, could become the first containerships to break the 20,000 teu barrier, according to Alphaliner.
From images taken of the Madrid Maersk at the DSME yard in Okpo, South Korea, the consultant believes the ultra-large vessels could have a “notably higher capacity” than the official 19,630 teu capacity rating.
“First images from the shipyard suggest that Maersk Line has extensively modified the design of the ships to further increase container intake,” said Alphaliner.
