The current Triple-E ships might be energy efficient, but it gets even better. Maersk Line is planning to work with shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) to install smaller 7 cylinder engines on the last ten ultra large ships, as well as a newer version of the engines with improved efficiency and other design enhancements, Louise Münter, Head of Communications at A.P. Moeller-Maersk, tells ShippingWatch.

However, she stresses that there will be no changes made to the hull design, and that the deal will have no impact on the scheduled delivery of the last ten ships, planned to begin September 2014, as otherwise hinted at in Alphaliner's latest analysis.
