Gudrun MaerskUntil the delivery of the Emma Maersk a few months ago, the Gudrun Maersk (IMO: 9302877, Port of Registry: Svenborg, Denmark) was, together with its sisters Gjertrud Maersk, Gerd Maersk, Grete Maersk, Gunvor Maersk and Georg Maersk, the longest containership currently sailing. The Gudrun Maersk is 367 meters long, 43 meters wide and is capable of transporting 8.500 teu. With these capacities the Gudrun Maersk comes to a deadweight tonnage of 115.700.

The vessel entered the Maersk fleet in June 2005 and was built by Odense Steel Shipyard, Denmark. Currently this Post-Panamax ship is sailing on the Far East - Europe line on which it visits, amongst others, Singapore, Kobe, Hong Kong, Felixstowe, Bremerhaven and of course Rotterdam. The Gudrun Maersk will enter Rotterdam later this afternoon from Felixstowe and will take berth at the terminal. The next port of call will be Bremerhaven. She will return within about one week in Rotterdam.
