NYK OLYMPUS

The NYK Olympus (IMO: 9312987, Port of Registry: Panama) was built in 2007 at IHI corporation shipyard, Japan and is currently operated by NYK Ship Management. The vessel is 336 metres long, 46 metres wide and has a maximum TEU capacity of 9,120 of which 600 reefer containers. These dimensions give the vessel a gross tonnage of 98,799. She is propelled by a Sulzer 12RT-flex96C engine which delivers a power output of 68,200 kW. She has a maximum speed of 24.5 knots. Although not as large as the NYK vessels Vesta, Vega, Venus and Virgo, the NYK Olympus is still one of the largest containervessels currently sailing in the NYK fleet, which doesn't feature any super post-panamax vessels yet.

EVELYN MAERSK

Evelyn Maersk
The Evelyn Maersk (IMO: 9321512, Port of Registry: Copanhagen, Denmark) is, together with her sisters (amongst which are the 'Emma Maersk' and 'Eleonora Maersk'), the largest containership ever in dimensions with a total teu capacity 13,500 teu (of which 1,000 forty foot reefer containers) according to the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. This capacity is possible by stacking the containers in 22 rows wide. The vessel is 397 meters long, 56 meters wide, has a depth of 30 meters and a deadweight of 156,907 tons. Amazingly, all this size and capacity requires a crew of only 13. The specially designed Wärtsilä diesel engine delivers 80,000 kW. A waste heat recovery system is installed to optimise the use of the energy produced, so that the engine can deliver up to 90,000 kW. The vessels in this series will also establish new standards for safety and environmental responsibility. Environmentally-safe silicone paint, for example, is used on the hull, below the water line, reducing water resistance, and thereby fuel consumption, by 1,200 tons per year. The ship was launched at Odense Steel Shipyard Ltd on March 3rd 2007.

The Evelyn Maersk is scheduled to arrive later this afternoon at the APM terminal, Rotterdam from Suez Canal Terminal. The vessel will then set sail for Bremerhaven on the APM AE1 line. She will return within two weeks to Rotterdam for her second call this loop.

CMA CGM CORTE REAL

CMA CGM Corte RealToday we have the CMA CGM Corte Real (IMO: 9454400, Port of Registry: London) as the Ship of the Day. The Corte Real is currently one of the largests vessels in CMA CGM's fleet with a maximum teu capacity of 13,344. The vessel is 365 meters long and 51 meters wide. She was built in 2010 by Daewoo Heavy Industries, Korea. The vessel's design is comparable to the recently built MSC vessels (such as: MSC Beatrice) with the superstructure located midships. 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. In compliance with CMA CGM’s environmental policy and like all new vessels of this type ordered by the Group, the CMA CGM Corte Real is equipped with a combination of innovative environmental features, including:

- An electronically controlled engine, reducing oil and fuel consumption thus enabling the vessel to be operated at eco-speed,
- Double-hull protected bunker tanks, in compliance with the MARPOL 12A regulation which will come into effect in August 2010
- The Fast Oil Recovery System, which enables bunkers to be rapidly recovered at any time, hence significantly limiting the environmental consequences should there be an incident at sea.

The Corte Real has seven sisterships, amongst which are the CMA CGM Christoph Colomb and CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci which have also been recently delivered. She is deployed in CMA CGM's FAL5 loop connecting China and North-Western Europe.

The CMA CGM Corte Real arrived this morning at the ECT Delta terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Zeebrugge.

ELLY MAERSK

Elly Maersk
The Elly Maersk (IMO: 9321536, Port of Registry: Svendborg, Denmark) is, together with her sisters (amongst which are the 'Emma Maersk' and 'Evelyn Maersk'), the largest containership in dimensions with a total teu capacity 11,000 teu (of which 1,000 forty foot reefer containers) according to the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. This capacity is possible by stacking the containers in 22 rows wide. The vessel is 397 meters long, 56 meters wide, has a depth of 30 meters and a deadweight of 156,907 tons. Amazingly, all this size and capacity requires a crew of only 13. The specially designed Wärtsilä diesel engine delivers 80,000 kW. A waste heat recovery system is installed to optimise the use of the energy produced, so that the engine can deliver up to 90,000 kW. The vessels in this series will also establish new standards for safety and environmental responsibility. Environmentally-safe silicone paint, for example, is used on the hull, below the water line, reducing water resistance, and thereby fuel consumption, by 1,200 tons per year. The ship was already the sixth in line of Maersk PS-class vessels. Currently there are eight PS-class vessels of which the most recent is the 'Eugen Maersk'. The new MSC vessels, amongst which is the MSC Danit are smaller in dimensions, but can transport more TEU than the PS-class vessels of Maersk, due to her smart design (which doesn't give her the best looks).

The Elly Maersk arrived this morning at the APM terminal, Rotterdam from the port of Algeciras. She will stay there for about 36 hours. The vessel will then set sail for Bremerhaven on the APM AE10 line. She will return within about 7 weeks to Rotterdam.
