Namegiving of newbuilding L 203 from Odense Steel Shipyard
On Saturday 12 August 2006 Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group.

Mrs Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, accompanied by her husband, Mr Peder Uggla, honoured A.P. Moller - Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding EMMA MÆRSK. The namegiving ceremony was attended by the Company’s and the Yard’s Boards of Directors as well as Mr Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller.

The newbuilding is named after Mr Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller’s late wife, Emma, who passed away in December last year. Just as Emma Mc-Kinney Møller was a person others held in high regard, the vessel EMMA MÆRSK will set her mark. As the world's largest container vessel she will set new standards for safety and environment. Environmentally friendly silicone paint covers the hull of the vessel below the waterline – reducing water resistance and cutting the vessel’s fuel consumption by 1,200 tonnes per year.

With her 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, EMMA MÆRSK will after delivery enter Maersk Line’s worldwide service and thereby together with the other vessels contribute to a global, competitive and flexible transport for the Company’s customers.

EMMA MÆRSK will be registered in Taarbæk and will be commanded by Captain Henrik Solmer with Michael Thomassen Sort as Chief Engineer.
