Maersk Line is reacting to new sulphur requirements set to come in play from the turn of the year by getting ready to place orders for ten new feeder ships sailing on low sulphur fuel. The vessels each have a capacity of 3,400 TEU, TradeWinds writes.

The ships will be equipped to run on fuel with a maximum of 0.1% sulphur, so they can meet the new strict requirements in Europe and the US taking effect from January 1, 2015.
