Fuel From Algae.  It's New, It Works...

Made In China.  Contracted By Wal-Mart. 

See the editorial under the last picture. That says it all!

    
 The Emma Maersk, part of a Danish shipping line
                is shown in the photos below.
 

     

 
 
            What a ship....no wonder 'Made in China ' is displacing North American made goods big time. This monster transports goods across the Pacific in just 5 days!! This is one of three ships 
presently in service, with another 2 commissioned to be completed in 2012.

             
       

     


       These ships were commissioned by Wal-Mart to get all their goods and 
stuff from China . They hold an incredible 15,000 cartons and have a 207 foot deck beam!!  The full crew is just 13 people on a ship longer than a US Aircraft Carrier (which has a crew of 5,000). 
        With it's 207' beam it is too big to fit through the Panama or Suez Canals. ..
        

                    It is strictly transpacific. Cruise speed: 31 knots. 


       The goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on 
       a China -to-
 California  run.  91% of Walmart products are made in China . 
        So this behemoth is hugely competitive even when carrying perishable      goods.   
              
 

       The ship was built in five sections. The sections floated
 together and then welded.   

         The command bridge is higher than a 10-story building and has 11 cargo crane rigs 
  
          that can operate simultaneously unloading the entire ship in less than two hours.  



 
 Additional info:

               Country of origin - Denmark
                    Length - 1,302 ft
                    Width - 207 ft
                    Net cargo - 123,200 tons 
                    Engine - 14 cylinders in-line diesel engine (110,000 BHP) 
                    Cruise Speed - 31 knots
 
                    Cargo capacity - 15,000 TEU (1 TEU = 20 cubic feet)
                    Crew - 13 people !
                    First Trip - Sept. 08, 2006 
                    Construction cost - US $145,000,000+

                Silicone painting applied to the ship bottom reduces water  
 
                resistance and saves 317,000 gallons of diesel per year.


   



               Editorial Comment!


           A recent documentary in late March, 2010 on the History Channel noted that  
           all of these containers are shipped back to China , 
EMPTY. Yep, that's right.  
           We send nothing back on these ships. 
What does that tell you about 
           the current financial state of this country?
 Just keep buying those imported 
           goods (mostly gadgets) until you run out of money. 

           Then you may wonder what the cause of unemployment (maybe even your job) 
           in the U.S. and Canada  might be????
