Loch Striven Lay-ups

Earlier on Thursday morning, MAERSK BOSTON joined the four other Maersk Line containerships at the designated deep water anchorage in Loch Striven. Over the next few weeks, she, like the other vessels, will be gradually decommissioned. Most of the exhaust uptakes on the other vessels have already been covered over with tarpaulins as the laying up procedure continues. The ships are (from left to right) MAERSK BENTONVILLE, MAERSK BALTIMORE, SEALAND PERFORMANCE, MAERSK BEAUMONT and MAERSK BOSTON.
