By mid-year 2006 the construction project was going well when on June 9th the accommodation block was devastated by fire.

 The Emma Mærsk was about six-seven weeks delayed.
The delay caused by a devastating fire in the accommodation quarters in the early days of June.
A welding job on the main deck, close to the end of working hours, led to a fire that totally destroyed the almost finished accommodation quarters and all the equipment in the wheelhouse.

The fire was large and devastating.

Capacity of more than 10.000 Containers 20´.
