Rickmers Group Celebrates Vessel Naming

Tuesday, July 03, 2007
The Rickmers Group celebrated the naming of the latest addition to its fleet, the 4250-TEU container vessel Marte Rickmers. Marte von Have, wife of lawyer Harro von Have from Hamburg, acted as the sponsor of the vessel. The naming ceremony took place in the presence of more than 100 guests, business partners of the Rickmers Group, customers of Rickmers-Linie and representatives from the shipyard. Under the terms of an eight-year time charter agreement with the French operator CMA CGM, the ship will operate under the name CMA CGM Azure. It will be employed initially in the French company’s liner service between the Far East and the Mediterranean.

Marte Rickmers is the third vessel out of a series of 21 ordered from Dalian by Rickmers Group. With a length of 802 ft. and a Panamax beam of 106 ft., Marte Rickmers is the first newly-built vessel to be sold directly to Rickmers Maritime in Singapore upon delivery and will be managed by Rickmers Shipmanagement (Singapore) Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of the Rickmers Group. The total number of vessels in the Rickmers fleet is now 82.
