The container vessels will have energy efficient features while also carrying more units than smaller class ships.

Danish shipping company Maersk has recently ordered 10 of the world’s largest ships that are also the world’s most fuel-efficient container vessels. The “Triple-E” container ships, to be manufactured by the Korean firm Daewoo, are wider than any other vessel ever built and will have a capacity of 18,000 TEU (Twenty-foot equivalent units).

The most remarkable features of these ships, though, are their fuel efficiencies, which will produce extremely low CO2 emissions. The Maersk Line Triple-E container ships will be equipped with twin engines that will run slower than its contemporaries, while a waste heat recovery system will save on main engine power. The ships, costing around $190 million per vessel, will consume 35 percent less fuel than the much smaller 13,100 TEU vessels and will release only half the amount of pollutants other ships emit on the Asia–Europe trade route that it plans to operate in.
