Design[edit]

The container vessel Gudrun Maersk was constructed at the Odense Steel shipyard in Denmark and launched in 2005. At the time it was the world's largest container vessel, a title it lost in 2006 to the Emma Maersk. The Gudrun Maersk has a capacity of 8,500 TEU.[1] The length of the vessel is 367 m (1,204 ft) and the beam is 43 m (141 ft).[2] The vessel's deadweight is 115,700 metric tons[3] with a gross tonnage of 97,933.[4] The maximum power of the Sulzer 12RT-flex96C low-speed common rail main engine of Gudrun Maersk is 68,640 kW (93,211 bhp)at 102 rpm. Gudrun and her 5 sister ships use exhaust heat recovery and cogeneration, producing 6 MWe and reducing the need for diesel generators.[5][6]
