The world’s largest container ship company, Maersk Line of Denmark has begun to increase capacity on it’s  S Class 8600 TEU containerships. The plan is to raise the wheelhouse (bridge) and thereby
accommodate an extra layer of containers. The vessels will be capable of carrying around 10,000 TEU after the work is completed. We assume Maersk has concluded that vessel stability will not be adversely affected by the higher centre of gravity.
