The containership is preparing to embark on its maiden voyage towards Copenhagen, Denmark.

Maersk stated: “The introduction of this container vessel is a significant step towards realising our commitment to becoming carbon neutral, and it marks the beginning of a new era in shipping, where we together can minimise greenhouse gas emissions and create a greener future.”

The European Commission’s President, Ursula von der Leyen, consented to name Maersk’s new feeder vessel.
