The Maersk Edison (IMO: 9463011, Port of Registry: London) is Maersk's answer to the new breed of containervessels, introduced by MSC, with the superstructure midships. The Maersk Edison was the first of nine newbuildings in this class, amongst which are the Maersk Edinburgh, Maersk Edmonton and Maersk Eindhoven. The vessel is 366 meters long and 48 meters wide and has a deadweight of 141,000 tonnes. She has a maximum capacity of 13,092 teu. The vessels are deployed in Maersk's AE-7 and AE-8 loop where they will replace the VLCS ships. The vessels are crucial in Maersk's strategy to maintain and expand market share. Rumours are that Maersk is also considering 18,000 teu vessels to be built in the following years.

The Maersk Edison arrived last night at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam. She will return to Rotterdam next week on her second call to Rotterdam this loop.
