The Ane Maersk, a 16,200 TEU vessel, is the first of 18 methanol-powered ships ordered by Maersk. Named after Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, the chair of the AP Moller Foundation and AP Moller Holding, the ship was christened by her granddaughter. Set to serve the AE7 route between Asia and Europe starting in February, the Ane Maersk will run on green methanol, aligning with Maersk’s efforts to secure sustainable fuels for 2024-2025. Maersk defines green fuels as those achieving significant GHG emission reductions compared to fossil fuels. The Ane Maersk features a unique design with a front-placed bridge for fuel efficiency.
