A 2,700 TEU containership built at Blohm+Voss, which belongs to ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, was christened Cosco Panama. Godmother of the ship was Anja Berlien
, wife of Dr. Olaf Berlien, Chairman of the Board of Directors at ThyssenKrupp Technologies AG
. GEBAB (Gesellschaft für Konzeption und Betreuung privater Investitionen mbH, Meerbusch) is the ship’s owner; Maritime GmbH is the ship’s manager.
Cosco Panama is particularly significant in that it is likely the last time a containership will be launched from the Blohm + Voss yard.
ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems AG made
the strategical decision to have Blohm + Voss concentrate on the construction of large-scale yachts and naval vessels.
