Rio Bravo Christened in Antwerp

Thursday, November 12, 2009

The Rio Bravo was christened Nov. 12 in the port of Antwerp. She is the fifth newbuilding in a series of six identical Hamburg Süd container vessels, each with a slot capacity of 5,900 TEU.

Sponsor of the Rio Bravo is Laura Madeleine von Schubert, daughter of Roland Oetker, Managing Partner of R.O.I. Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH and Member of the Advisory Board of the Oetker Group.

Following her delivery on 18 August 2009 at Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries (DMHI), the Rio Bravo was first deployed in the service between Asia and South America East Coast before being phased into the Europe – South America East Coast Service in mid-October. She will be calling at Antwerp for the first time for the christening.

The final newbuilding of this series, the Rio Madeira, will also see service in Hamburg Süd’s Europe – South America Service. She is due to be delivered before the end of November 2009.
