Largest vessel on the Thames

On 26 February the container ship Munkebo Maersk became the largest ship to ever sail up the Thames as she called at DP World London Gateway. The 399m by 60m, 194,849gt Triple-E vessel, capable of carrying more than 18,300TEU, is operated on Maersk’s new East-West Network.

She called at DP World London Gateway Port a few weeks after Edith Maersk called at DP World London Gateway, which, at 366m, had held the previous record for the largest ship on the Thames. DP World London Gateway recently announced that it has plans for a new 400m third berth at the port, to be operational in the second half of 2016. The current quay cranes can reach across 25 rows of containers.
