Maersk Line orders two more 15,000TEU boxships

Danish container shipping major Maersk Line has exercised an option for the construction of two 15,200TEU containerships at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The options are part of a contract signed in 2015 for the construction of nine 15,200TEU boxships plus eight additional ships of the same size.

Maersk said in its 2017 annual report the H-class ships will be delivered in the second half of 2019.

Maersk Line took delivery of five second-generation Triple-E vessels and four of the 15,200TEU vessels in 2017.
