Spotted: Jebel Ali Port Hosts Its First Triple-E Boxship

Magleby Maersk

Global marine terminals operator DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port has received its first Triple-E vessel, the Magleby Maersk.

The 18,270 TEUs container vessel is on its maiden visit to the region.

Jebel Ali said that it is one of the very few ports in the Middle East equipped to receive containerships of the size of the Magleby Maersk, a Triple-E class vessel with an overall length of 399.2 meters, equivalent to four football pitches. The Magleby Maersk’s moulded beam is 59 metres wide, and the ship has a maximum draft of 16.5 metres. Maersk Line operates the carrier on its 2M Europe-Asia route.

With the completion of the 4 million TEU Terminal 3, the port will be able to handle 10 mega ships simultaneously.

DP World said it recently started the construction work on the new Container Terminal 4 which will deliver the capacity of 3.1 million TEU in Phase 1 by 2018, taking the port’s total capacity to 22.1 million TEU.
