Sofie Maersk’s Main Engine Breaks Down

Danish-flagged Post Panamax containership MV Sofie Maersk has suffered a main engine failure on its way to Asia.

The 8,160 TEU containership is being moved to Honolulu port to initiate repairs and take provisions, according to the vessel’s operating carrier cited by Hapag-Lloyd on March 8.

The containership is fully-laden and its cargo is expected to remain onboard whilst repairs are ongoing.

The 1989-built vessel is deployed on Eastbound AC2 service connecting Asia and West Coast South America.

The earliest estimated arrival time in Qingdao will be on April 8.

Details on the potential cause of the engine failure were not disclosed.

Sofie Maersk is owned by Danish Moller Maersk AS and it is worth around USD 17.46 million, data from VesselsValue shows.
