Emma Maersk

Emma Maersk details 170.000 grt length 1303 feet breadth 184 feet 207 feet in height and a draft of 51 feet. Emma Maersk can carry up to 15000 20ft containers and has a speed of 27 knts. Her crew numbers 13 she is a big ship small crew. I wonder how long before the ships get bigger and the crews smaller.

you lads are right. She is big and the crew is small. soon it will be all done by computer and there will be no crew apart from one to press the stop/start buttons. maybee all captains of the future are being trained by a large computer company already...LOl

Bigger is Best

This the start of bigger is best.
Thinks I went to sea at the right time, when it was fun to be at sea.

I must agree with Dave. In my day we used to get aweek or so in port.then containers came along including keeping watch in port and shore leave hence great experience of all types became a thing of the past

There is a perception that having fun at sea means having a week in port with plenty of shore leave.
Driving a large container ship is fun and immensely satisfying in itself. The job satisfaction lies in your ability to deliver thousands of containers in the most cost effective method availiable today, thus enriching the lives of millions of people around the world. Much more satisfying than a run up the road to down half a dozen pints in "The British".

Thanks for that Duquesa, interesting. - Also a monument to mankind's unfailing ability to mess up other people's shots, by standing infront of the camera...

I can confirm that the OSS is owned by Maersk. Not only the replacement deck house for Emma, but all deck houses are built in the Baltic. The same goes for a lot of the hull sections as well, and also for all the cargo hold hatches. And a small correction: There is going to be built eight of the class, not ten as widely reported.

Hi
There have been about 8 ships that have carried the name 'Emma Maersk'. For the IMO Numbers & building dates, check this site out: http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz/ship/list

As for the Superstructure build, the Emma's accomadation block was lifted of and, from what I have seen on another site, the Estelle's block which was almost finished was lifted onto the Emma instead.

I missed seeing her in Felixstowe, but plenty of my shipmates did see it, and some of them brought back onto the ship press articles about the event. I shall just have to wait until next time.

Regards
Karl

Hello everybody

The former eastern german shipyard Volkswerft in Stralsund belongs to Odense Stålskibsværft and the Maersk Moller Group. They bought this shipyard in 1998.
Take a look on their homepage:
www.volkswerft.de
This shipyard are building a number of ships to maersk - the socalled PanMax containerships. They also build some of the special ships that maersk own.
For foreign companys they have made a number of ships - for instance ships to the norvegian "Hurtigruten".
Take a look on their homepage:
www.hurtigruten.no

Regards
Thorsten

Emma Maersk

Emma departed from Algeciras today (20/11) bound for Suez, luckily she was delayed from her original time of 06.00 (cos it was dark!) but the sun was nearly in the wrong position as she departed at 12.00

...that would actually be his or hers! Maersk employes quite a few female officers these days, including engineers, chief officers and captains. I am not aware of any female chief engineers, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.
When the Georg Mærsk was delivered earlier this year, it was a woman, Michele de Linde Gladwin, who took command (go to www.oss.dk, click the British flag, then select "News" in the top bar, select "News" again in the left pane bar, then select "Namegiving of newbuilding L 202 from Odense Steel Shipyard").
