Thank you very much, Vlad.
Thanks all for your comments.
Long time ago, (in a galaxy far away), I was told that "if you lose the engine, you lose the ship". If this damage hapenned to her aft side, including her engine room, I think Maersk would seriously consider writing her off completely. In this case, however, her main machinery remained intact, as she lost only her forward thrusters. Obviously she'll need a completely new superstructure with all electronic equipment, too. So, her "parent" yard, Hyundai Heavy Industries from Ulsan, Korea, will make completely new hull and superstructure parts to replace the destroyed ones. Removal and scrapping of the parts seen on these photos from Dubai Dry Docks will be a separate endeavour (including the transport of the fore part of the hull overseas), and I will later upload a photo to say something more on the subject.
In my professional experience I've surveyed a fire damage on a cargo ship once (20+ fire trucks and dozens and dozens of firefighters involved) but that was a mere sunburn compared to this one...
Imagine the heat, goddamn...
All she needs is a new forward section, a midship section, a new superstructure and a new aft section and she'll be fine. |

you wrote, that the vessel has been cut into 2 pieces. Together with all these damages, will it still be cheaper to repair this vessel than scrap it and order a newbuilding, although itīs rather new? I havenīt any idea about the costs.
