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'), one of the largest containerships in dimensions with a total teu capacity 11,000 teu (of which 1,000 forty foot reefer containers). 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 have established 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.

The Elly Maersk is scheduled arrived this afternoon at the APM terminal, Rotterdam from the port of Suez. She will stay there for about 24 hours. The vessel will then set sail for Bremerhaven on the APM AE10 line. She will return within about 7 weeks to Rotterdam.

SIGRID

Today's Ship of the Day is the nuclear fuel carrier Sigrid (IMO: 9631840, Port of Registry: Oskarshamn, Sweden) which was launched on 25 October this year at Damen shipyard, Galati, Romania. Her owner, Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company, SKB, has chosen to carry out its shipments of radioactive waste by sea. It uses a purpose-built vessel to transport low- and intermediate-level operational waste from all of Sweden’s nuclear power plants to SFR, the final repository for short-lived radioactive waste at Forsmark. The ship also transports spent nuclear fuel to Clab, the company’s interim storage facility in Oskarshamn.

The Sigrid has double hulls, four engines and other duplicated systems to enhance safety and availability. She needs to be able both to manoeuvre in shallow water and to cope with high seas and harsh winter conditions. She will have low fuel consumption and an environment-friendly design. With a length of almost 100 meters and a width of 19 meters, Sigrid is somewhat larger than her predecessor Sigyn and can carry 12 nuclear fuel and waste containers.

M/S Sigrid arrived this morning at Damen shipyard, Schiedam from Galati, Romania to finish work on board of the vessel.

A total capacity of 13,500 teu is also possible when containers are not fully loaded. This capacity is possible by stacking the containers in 22 rows wide. Maersk calculates the teu capacity with loaded containers. 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.

EVELYN MAERSK

Evelyn Maersk
The Evelyn Maersk (IMO: 9321512, Port of Registry: Copenhagen, Denmark) is, together with her sisters (amongst which is the 'Emma Maersk'), one of the containerships 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.

The Steregushchy-class corvettes have a steel hull and composite superstructure, with a bulbous bow and nine watertight subdivisions. They have a combined bridge and command centre, and space and weight provision for eight SS-N-25 missiles.Stealth technology was widely used during construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs. Newest physical field reduction solutions were applied too. As a result, designers considerably reduced the ship's radar signature thanks to hull architecture and fire-resistant radar-absorbent fiberglasses applied in tophamper's design. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Steregushchiy arrived this morning at the Holland Amerikakade, Rotterdam. She is expected to leave the Port of Rotterdam this afternoon.
