One small word effectively summarizes this year's featured "Great Ship of 2006," the containership EMMA MÆRSK. Measuring 1,302 x 183.7 ft. (397 x 56 m) with a 45.9 ft. (14-m) draft, the mammoth ship delivered on September 1, 2006 from Odense Steel Shipyard is able to carry 11,000 TEU, and is currently the world's largest containership. As global trade grows, so must the mechanisms that support it. Emma Maersk EMMA MÆRSK represents a new wave in making goods available faster, more easily, and in greater quantities, than ever before. EMMA MÆRSK is named after Mrs. Emma Mc-Kinney Møller, the late wife of Mr. Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller. It represents the next generation of container vessels, setting the standard for the future with a unique combination of size, advanced technology and environment friendly innovations. In order for the container industry to keep moving forward -- and to keep stride with continued rapid growth in the volume of cargo transported by container -- there is a need for continued development and improvement. Innovation means reviewing and rethinking business concepts. EMMA MÆRSK is a step in this evolution. Environment is an essential part of business, particularly in today's shipping's litigious environment. Maersk Line works toward ways of both meeting and exceeding, present and future standards. Mr. A.P. Møller, the founder of A.P. Moller - Maersk, said, "No loss should hit us which can be avoided with constant care." These words still shape the activities of the company's business today and reflect its approach to the company's environmental policy. It aims to ensure that all of operations are managed responsibly with respect for the world. All education and training programs cover environmental sensitivity and awareness. The company strives toward creating the next generation of vessels, positively influencing the future of containerization. It therefore designs its vessels in the most environmentally sound manner possible. EMMA MÆRSK has an advanced energy efficiency system, waste heat recovery system, and an electronically controlled engine, features that all contribute to fewer emissions through a reduced total fuel consumption of up to 10 percent. In addition, the hull of EMMA MÆRSK is painted with a biocide-free siliconebased antifouling paint. This initiative reduces the impact on the oceans and lowers fuel consumption by an estimated 1,200 tons per year. Safety is a top priority for Maersk Line and the company is committed to the application of constant care to improve safety throughout our company in all operations. Since 2005 all vessels have been built with protected fuel tanks, placed away from the outer part of the hull. These inboard fuel tanks are a preventive measure to avoid oil spills in case of incidents. EMMA MÆRSK is built with fuel tanks like these to ensure that our operations are conducted in the safest possible manner. For protection against a potential oil spill in case of a collision or grounding, the fuel tanks are placed in the center of the double hull, protected and away from the shell plating of the hull. The remaining tanks containing lubrication oil or oil residuals, i.e. anything than clean water, are placed in the center of the double hull. EMMA MÆRSK is a highly automated vessel, enabling it to be operated by a crew of just 13 people. The vessel is equipped with 14 life buoys. Six with light, two quick release from bridge wings with combined smoke and light, two with 60-m line and four life buoys without equipment. MSC Heidi was built for Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. by DSME, designed as double skinned construction in the way of cargo holds except No.1 hold and arranged with nine cargo holds, 20 bays of 40 ft. container Maritime Reporter & Engineering News 18
