Today's ship of the day is the recently delivered MSC Alexandra (IMO: 9461374, Port of Registry: Panama). This container vessel is 365 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 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 a 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 Alexandra is operated by Mediterranean Shipping Company on their Far-East to Europe loop.

The MSC Alexandra is scheduled to arrived this morning at the ECT Delta terminal, Rotterdam from Bremerhaven and will depart within 24 hours.
