Danish shipping giant Maersk Line has named its new H-Class ship, Maersk Horsburgh, in South Korea.

The ultra large container vessel (ULCV) was built at Korean Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard.

With a deadweight of 162,100 tons, the newbuilding features a length of 353 meters and a width of 53.5 meters.

Market value of the boxship currently stands at USD 113.07 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.

“A capacity of 15,226 TEU yet 46 meters shorter than the original Emma Class, these new ships will boost efficiency on global trade routes,” Maersk Line said.

H-Class ships were designed for operational versatility in order to take advantage of shifting trade patterns. The greater capacity allows them to efficiently serve on the East-West trades, while its smaller size means these vessels are also capable of calling what are typically smaller ports on the North-South trades, if needed.

As disclosed, Maersk Horsburgh is part of a number of container vessels, most of them on the large end of the scale, which have begun arriving to the company’s fleet this year to replace older, less efficient ones.
