Maersk names world’s 1st large methanol-powered container ship

History was made in January 2024 at HD Hyundai Heavy Industries (HD HHI) in Ulsan, South Korea as the world’s first large methanol-enabled container vessel was named.

The 16,000 TEU containership was named Ane Maersk after Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla, the Chair of the A.P. Moller Foundation and A.P. Moller Holding.

Ane’s eldest granddaughter served as godmother and christened the vessel by breaking a champagne bottle over the bow.

Ane Maersk is the first of Maersk’s 18 large methanol-enabled vessels that will be delivered between 2024 and 2025. She is the world’s second methanol-enabled container vessel.

Ane Mærsk will begin her maiden voyage on green1 methanol as Maersk continues to work on 2024-2025 sourcing and bunkering solutions for its methanol-enabled vessel fleet.
