In today’s spotted, we bring you an image of Munich Maersk, which berthed at EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg on August 5 while on its maiden voyage.

With a nominal capacity of 20,568 TEU, the container vessel is one of the largest in the world. The boxship, which flies the flag of Denmark, features a length of 399 meters and a width of 58.6 meters. Currently, Munich Maersk is worth USD 153.9 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The mega-ship belongs to the second generation of Maersk Line’s Triple-E class and calls Hamburg as part of the AE5 service of the 2M alliance, which connects European harbors with ports in the Far East.

Built at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea, the 190,300 dwt Munich Maersk was delivered to the carrier in June.

“Hamburg is an important location for Maersk Line and the maiden call of Munich Maersk is a great opportunity to celebrate our good cooperation with the city and the port,” Jens-Ole Krenzien, Vice President North West Continent, Maersk Line, commented.

Munich Maersk is part of a series of the company’s eleven container ships which will be delivered by the end of 2018. According to Maersk, the ships of the second generation of the Triple-E class are setting new standards in container shipping and will replace smaller, less efficient ships on the East-West-trade.

One of the highlights of the Munich Maersk and its sister vessels is, among other things, that it has similar dimensions as the previous generation, but can load 2,000 TEU more. Compared to the first generation, Munich Maersk is seven percent more efficient.
