Santa Cruz Christened in Shanghai

July 25, 2011

On Saturday, 23 July 2011, Hamburg Süd christened the container ship “Santa Cruz” in Shanghai. Sponsor of the “Santa Cruz” was Heike Schmidt, wife of Dr Heino Schmidt, Member of the Executive Board of Hamburg Süd.
Santa Cruz is the fourth newbuilding of a series of 10 identical container vessels each featuring a slot capacity of 7,100 TEU and fitted with 1,600 reefer container plugs. This makes her one of the largest ships ever built for Hamburg Süd. All ten vessels in this series are to be delivered by late 2012.
Since her delivery at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) in Korea in early May 2011, the “Santa Cruz” has been operating in Hamburg Süd’s service between Asia and South Africa/South America East Coast (New Good Hope Express).
Santa Cruz is named after one of the four provinces in the Argentinian part of Patagonia. Argentina is one of Hamburg Süd’s most important markets in South America.
