THE Caroline Maersk (right) has completed sea trials in Norwegian waters before delivery to A.P. Moller. The ship was christened at Denmark's Odense Steel Shipyard this month. The ship is the first in a series of three advanced container vessels built at Odense yard for A.P. Moller of Copenhagen, parent company of Maersk Line. These ships are extended versions of the Christian Maersk, the last in a series of six advanced container ships delivered by Odense Lindo to A.P. Moller between December 1991 and August 1992. The 190-metre-long and 28-metre-wide ship is driven by a nine-cylinder Mitsubishi diesel engine, attaining a top speed of more than 19 knots when fully loaded. Due to the high level of automation, including the highly efficient design of the bridge, the vessel can be operated by a crew of only eight.
