Photos of the Largest Ship Ever Built, Now Under Construction
When it is completed, the first ship in Maersk Triple E series will be the largest ever built in human history. Photographer Alastair Philip Wiper got the chance to crawl around it for a few hours while the hulk, still under construction, passed through Copenhagen last year. You can see his photo set of this amazing machine here.
The Maersk shipping line plans to build 20 of these marvels, each of which is 59 meters wide and can carry 18,000 shipping containers. When the first one is complete, it will have a crew of 15 who can enjoy on board amenities, including a swimming pool and a movie theater. This ship is the pride of Opko, South Korea, where its construction now take place.
