Container giant signs contract for 2,100 teu dual-fuel newbuilding.


AP Moller-Maersk has ordered a dual-fuel 2,100 teu containership from Hyundai Mipo in South Korea. The Danish-flagged vessel will use a methanol/very-low-sulphur fuel oil engine and is expected to enter service with the Sealand Europe brand plying the Baltic.

The main engine is being developed by MAN Energy Solutions and Hyundai Engine and Machinery, and the auxiliary engine by Himsen. The vessel will be classed by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

“This groundbreaking container vessel shows that scalable solutions to properly solve shipping’s emissions challenge are available already today.

“From 2023 it will give us valuable experience in operating the container vessels of the future while offering a truly carbon neutral product for our many customers..” said Henriette Hallberg Thygesen, CEO of Fleet & Strategic Brands, AP Moller – Maersk.
