At 14.40, the ship sailed under the Storebælt bridge as scheduled.
Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller is the first of the Triple-E Class from the Danish shipping company, A.P Møller-Mærsk. Built in South Korea, it is now entering Denmark. The container ship will set sail on Tuesday, August 20 and pass under the Storebælt bridge on route to Gdansk in Poland.
When will the ship sail under the bridge?
The ship is expected to sail under the bridge at about 14.30. As it is difficult to give a precise time, please refer to www.worldslargestship.com for further updates. Sund & Bælt is not able to provide an accurate ETA.
Since Storebælt bridge is a motorway, it is not possible for safety reasons to stop either on the bridge or near the toll station to view the ship. A good vantage point on the Funen side would be “Fyns Badestrand” at the bridge abutment. The best location on Zealand would be close to the Iceboat museum in Halsskov or on the beach near Storebælt Camping and Holiday centre. Some traffic congestion is possible because these roads are not designed for major traffic.
Photos of the ship will be available on both Maersk and Storebælt’s Facebook sites after the event.
