MSC BeatriceToday's ship of the day is the recently delivered MSC Beatrice (IMO: 9399002, Port of Registry: Panama). This container vessel is 366 meters long and 51 meters wide. Due to her design with the superstructure midships, she is capable of transporting about 14,000 TEU, more than Maersk's PS-class (amongst which is the Emma Maersk). One can argue about the looks of this vessel, however the design ensures for better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. The main engine of the container ship is MAN B&W 12K98MC-C with full output power of 72,240 kW. This power is enough for the ship to reach maximum speed of 25 knots. The MSC Beatrice is operated by Mediterranean Shipping Company on their Far-East to Europe loop.

The MSC Beatrice arrived this morning at the ECT Delta terminal, Rotterdam from Felixstowe and will depart tomorrow.
