Manning the World’s Largest Vessel

By Vessels

The 1st Triple-E class ship has commenced its maiden sail in Busan, South Korea. At the helm, the crew members of the world's biggest ship Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller whose crew members have been selected between Maersk Line’s finest.
A good selection of highly qualified crew, specifically chosen because of their background, skills and experience, is going to man the biggest vessel in the world. Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller may accommodate 34, and in principle run with as few as 13, but in regular service nearly 22 persons are going to make out the crew.

Captains on the world's largest ship Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller are Jes Meinertz and Niels Vestergaard Pedersen, and the Chief Engineers are Per Schilling Nielsen and Niels Peter Svarer.

All of them were present at the naming ceremony in Korea on 14th of June, 2013. ”You are between the finest in your fields, and you must be honoured by being selected to take this ship into service,” told the CEO of Maersk Line in his speech on that occasion. ”May you always have fair winds and following seas.”
