Welcoming ANE MÆRSK to the fleet

At a ceremony Friday morning local Korean time, the newest addition to the fleet – and the first of Maersk’s large methanol-enabled container vessels – got her name; ANE MÆRSK.

ANE MÆRSK. That is the name of our first large container vessel sailing on green methanol. The vessel is named after Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, the Chair of the A.P. Moller Foundation and A.P. Moller Holding. Ane’s eldest granddaughter served as godmother and revealed the name of the newest addition to our fleet at a small naming ceremony, which took place at the Hyuandai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in South Korea Friday. The ceremony was hosted by Robert Uggla, Chairman of A.P. Moller – Maersk, and was attended by key local customers and representatives from Maersk and HHI.

Powered by green methanol and able to carry +16,000 TEU, ANE MÆRSK is an industry-first. The vessel marks another important step on the journey towards net zero Green House Gas (GHG) emissions that we embarked on in 2018 and will contribute to our target of having 25% of our container volume transported using green fuels by 2030.

The first ANE MÆRSK
Consistent with the tradition of naming Maersk vessels after members of the founding family, ANE MÆRSK is named after Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, chair of the A.P. Moller Foundation and of A.P. Moller Holding, the majority owner of A.P. Moller – Maersk. Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla is the granddaughter of A.P. Møller, who founded A.P. Moller – Maersk in 1904. A.P. Møller was succeeded by Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, the father of Mrs. Uggla.

It is the first time that a Maersk vessel has been named after Ane Uggla, and thus our new vessel will not only be the first large container vessel sailing on green methanol, it will also be the first ANE MÆRSK.

About the vessel

  • 350 meters long, 53.3 meters wide
  • Lightweight: 47,700 tonnes, Deadweight: 190,000 tonnes at Scantling Draft of 18.0 meters.
  • The vessel has 10 cargo holds, where the typical one is 29 m long, 48.5 m wide and 33 m high. If you fill up one cargo hold with water, then there would be enough water to fill up 19 Olympic swimming pools.
  • 16,592 TEU (twenty-foot-equivalent). If you line up 16,592 TEU containers, the line would be 100.5 km long – corresponding to 959 football pitches
  • The engine is a Dual Fuel type, meaning it can run on methanol as well as traditional marine fuels. The same applies to the auxiliary engines. The Auxiliary Engines can supply electricity for 87,500 homes.
  • Running on green methanol, the vessel saves up to approx. 280t of CO2 pr day compared to a sister vessel sailing on heavy fuels. Consumption of methanol is approximately double that of traditional fuel due to the lower energy density.
