Building vessels for the Future

August 26, 2018 - Juliane von Wirén To meet customer demand, sustain a competitive fleet and retain a strong market position, Maersk Tankers ordered six new LR2 vessels earlier this year. Peter Bertelsen, experienced shipbuilder, is heading the site office at Dalian shipyard, China, where the building of the vessels has just begun. Maersk Tankers constantly reviews its portfolio of vessels to ensure it vessels that can make longer voyages more efficiently while keeping the cost per trade low. Peter Bertelsen, a naval architect by education, has – during 13 years with Maersk, in various positions and countries – overseen the building of more than 70 vessels, 13 for Maersk Tankers itself. Since 2014, as site manager, first in Korea, then in China, he has been supervising the building of Maersk Tankers’ current series of MR newbuildings. “After having taken delivery of 13 out of the 19 MR newbuildings, it is time for me to hand over the responsibility and move on to Dalian shipyard to oversee the building of the LR2s,” says Bertelsen.
