The bow section was built in Amsterdam at the Nederlandsche Dock & Shipyard faclity and the stern was built in Rozenburg, Holland at the Verolme Dock and shipbuilding facilty. She entered service in 1979 as Nedlloyd Hoorn for Nedlloyd Line Co. Ltd. In 1987 she was renamed Maersk Rotterdam and in 1990 she reverted to Nedlloyd Hoorn. She sailed through the 1990s as such however her career finally came to and end late in 2002.
