Now you can get this beautiful container model Emma Maersk for your home or office. Our master craftsmen handcraft these nicely detailed models from scratch using her photographs, drawings, and original plan. The model is built to scale with top quality wood such as teak, mahogany with hollow superstructure and hull. She is 100% handcrafted individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of the actual ship. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This Emma container ship model is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display.
Emma Maersk is the first container ship in the E-class of eight owned by the A. P. Moller-Maersk Group. When launched in 2006 she was the largest container ship ever built, and in 2010 she and her seven sister ships were among the longest container ships. Officially, she is able to carry around 11,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) or 14,770 TEU. In May 2010, her sister ship Ebba Mærsk set a record of 15,011 TEU in Tanger-Med, Tangiers.
Emma Mærsk was built at the Odense Steel Shipyard in Denmark. She was named in a ceremony on 12 August 2006, after Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller’s late wife, Emma. She set sail on her maiden voyage on 8 September 2006 at 02:00 hours from Aarhus, calling at Gothenburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Algeciras, the Suez Canal, and arrived in Singapore on 1 October 2006 at 20:05 hours.
In 2008, the ship was featured on an episode of the television documentary series Mighty Ships, during a voyage between Malaysia and Spain. In 2011, the National Bank of Denmark issued a 20 DKK commemorative coin for her.
She is powered by a Wärtsilä-Sulzer engine, the world’s largest single diesel unit, weighing 2,300 tonnes and capable of 81 MW (109,000 hp) when burning 14,000 litres (3,600 US gal) of heavy fuel oil per hour. At economical speed, fuel consumption is 0.260 bs/hp·hour (1,660 gal/hour)
Two bow and two stern thrusters provide port maneuverability, and two pairs of stabilizer fins reduce rolling. A special silicone-based paint, instead of biocides used by much of the industry, keeps barnacles off of the hull. This increases her efficiency by reducing drag while also protecting the ocean from biocides that may leak. The paint is credited with lowering the water drag enough to save 1,200 tonnes of fuel per year. The ship has a bulbous bow, a standard feature for cargo ships.
The turning diameter at 44 km/h (24 knots) is 1.50 km (0.81 nmi). The engine is near midship to make the best use of the rigidity of the hull and to maximize capacity. When banking 20 degrees, the bridge sways 35 meters
