Maersk StepnicaThe Maersk Stepnica (IMO: 9352004, Port of Registry: Rotterdam) is the latest newbuilding for the Dutch based Maersk Ship management. Maersk Stepnica is the first in a series of five 8400 TEU container vessels delivered and built by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. in South Korea. The South-Korean shipbuilder also delivered another new building, Maersk Inverness (3364 TEU), in January this year. Maersk Stepnica, as Maersk Inverness, will be sailing under the Dutch flag and be mainly manned by Dutch officers. (source: Maersk Ship Management). The vessel has a teu capacity of 8,400, is 334 metres long and 43 metres wide. These dimensions give the vessel a deadweight tonnage of 101,500.

The Maersk Stepnica is scheduled to arrive this afternoon at the APM terminal where her name-giving ceremony will be held. The Maersk Stepnica will be deployed on Maersk's AE-1 loop. She is scheduled to return to Rotterdam in about 7 weeks.
