In photos: loading the world’s largest propeller

The world’s largest-diameter containership propeller was loaded onto a ship at the Port of Hamburg last weekend, bound for a South Korean shipyard from its German manufacturer.

The five-bladed propeller is believed to be largest-diameter containership propeller in the world, measuring 44 feet in diameter and weighing in at 113 tons.

The propeller was manufactured by Mecklenburger Metallguss GmbH in Waren, Germany and was shipped over-the-road to Hamburg in February, where it was then temporally stored.
