2,700 TEU Containership Launched at B&V

Friday, September 30, 2005
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.
