The launch was performed by Georgina H. Rodriguez Vazquez, the wife of Gustavo Rodriguez, CEO and president of the Maruba Group. The ship was ordered by GEBAB in Meerbusch and will be operated by the shipping line NSB Niederelbe Schiffahrtsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, Buxtehude. The ship had already been handed over to the shipping line the day before. Upon request of the shipping line, the ship was handed over earlier than scheduled. The remaining four ships will be delivered by the end of 2008.
