A Day in the Life on a Triple-E (Video)


A video released by The New York Times offers an insight into what it is like to be a Mary Maersk Triple-E crew member.

Having launched the Triple-E model in June 2013, Maersk operates 10 of these class ships along the Europe-Asia trade route.

Commenting on the navigation of the ship, Gothenburg Port Pilot Magnus Lindgren commented that pilots have to plan their actions in advance because the ships are so large, stating that it is not like driving a car where you can apply the brakes in an emergency.

Maersk Cadet Andrew Gill said of the working day that he will typically work for a total of eight hours, and will be split into four hours on and four hours off. This will last for around three months.

In length, the Mary Maersk Triple-E vessel is the equivalent of the empire state building, with enough steel to construct the Eiffel Tower eight times over.
