CMA CGM LAPEROUSE

CMA CGM LaperouseToday's Ship of the Day is the CMA CGM Laperouse (IMO: 9454412, Port of Registry: Marseille).

The Laperouse has seven sisterships, amongst which are the CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci and CMA CGM Corte Real. She is deployed in CMA CGM's FAL1 loop connecting China and North-Western Europe.

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.
