Biggest boat to ever navigate Thames docks at London Gateway
posted on Feb 26, 2015
A 200,000-tonne ship, the size of four football pitches, has entered London. Look at the state of it. It’s enormous.
The Munkebo Maersk, which is a brain-scrambling 400m long, is loaded with goodies for Britain including electronic things and clothes.
The ship arrived at the London Gateway port at 7am this morning, and will set off again at 3pm this afternoon.
It can hold 18,000 of those huge metal shipping containers.
Port of London CEO Robin Mortimer said: “Welcoming ships of this size is becoming business as usual for our pilots & harbour masters.”
Luckily the London Gateway port is equipped to deal with vessels as gargantuan as the Munkebo Maersk, and is using cranes a ludicrous 138m tall to offload the containers, which are stacked up like Lego bricks on top of one another.
The port itself is a marvel in its own right too. It is a deepwater port, allowing colossal ships to dock, and has a two-mile long quay. In total the area the port takes up is roughly twice the size of the City of London.
