Inside the engine room of the “World’s Largest Ship”

Photos from the engine room of the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller.

The Maersk Line has ordered 20 of these Triple E class beasts which have 18,000 TEU capacity and will be too big for the new Panamax locks, but is inside the Suezmax requirements.

Episode 7: “Photos from the engine room (in Port of Ningbo, China)”

Dear all,

Hereby another update from the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller.

We arrived in Ningbo on 20 July at 0900hrs in the morning.

Since we had a major event the day before in Shanghai, a smaller event was planned for Ningbo. The vessel received guests on the bridge at 1630hrs, mainly from Ningbo port.

After the speeches and exchange of gifts a vessel tour was conducted. Dinner was arranged in a very nice nearby restaurant. We left Ningbo early sunday morning bound for Yantian. Our ETA for Yantian is 24 July at 0800hrs in the morning.

The crew and I are very much looking forward to a few days at sea, after a very hectic program in Korea and the northern ports of China.

As requested by some of the readers of the blog I have attached photos from the engine room. And – not least – 2nd officer Yaroslav made a panorama photo of the bridge at night time.

Hope you enjoy it.
