The Marchen Maersk (IMO: 9359014, Port of Registry: Dragor, Denmark) is the second ship in a series of six container ships. The 7,000 teu container vessel was launched on Saturday 10 May 2008 at Odense Steel Shipyard, Denmark. She is 367 metres long, 43 metres wide and has a gross tonnage of 98,268.. The ship is designed and built to meet the highest demands for safe, precise, environmentally friendly and economic transportation of goods all over the globe. Among other things, a waste heat recovery system is installed to optimise the use of the energy produced. With her 12-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 93,000 BHP, the Marchen Maersk will be deployed in Maersk's AE-2 loop servicing, amongst others, several ports in South Korea and China, Rotterdam, Felixstowe and Bremerhaven.

The Marchen Maersk arrived this morning at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Bremerhaven. She will depart within about 36 hours with destination Felixstowe. The vessel is scheduled to return to Rotterdam in about two months.
