Allision in Antwerp
The 'Laust Maersk', while entering the Zandvliet lock in Antwerp, allided with the wall and suffered a crack of about three metres length above the waterline at portside on Aug 23, 2019, at 3 p.m. The ship returned to berth 722. On Aug 24 it left the port at 2.45 p.m. and headed to Rotterdam, where it arrived on Aug 25 around 1 a.m.
Deepest container ship ever to sail from Port Chalmers
The departure of Maersk’s Southern Star service vessel, Laust Maersk, today (Monday 29 February) will be an especially significant one; at 13.5 metres draft it will be the deepest container vessel to sail from New Zealand waters since the first container ships started arriving in Port Chalmers 35 years ago. The sailing comes only a few weeks after Port Otago completed the first stage of its Next Generation harbour deepening programme, to 13.5 metres, allowing large container ships like the Laust Maersk to make full use of the extra channel depth to carry more cargo. Thirteen and a half metres will be the deepest draft that any container ship has ever sailed from a New Zealand port and it continues Port Chalmers’ unique record of shipping firsts, dating back to 1882 with the first shipment of frozen meat to Europe. Port Chalmers is already the deepest container port in New Zealand and there have been several sailings of vessels at 13 metres over the last two years.News schreiben
