On Thursday, 23 May 2013, Hamburg Süd celebrated the double christening of its container ships Cap San Nicolas and Cap San Marco at the Hyundai Heavy Industries yard in Ulsan (South Korea).
 
With a nominal slot capacity of 9,600 TEU, the two newbuildings are Hamburg Süd’s largest-ever vessels and, with 2,100 reefer plugs, the ships with the largest reefer capacity worldwide at present. 
 
The sponsor of the Cap San Nicolas is Narcisa Oetker, wife of Ferdinand Oetker, Partner in Dr. August Oetker KG and Director of Bankhaus Lampe. The Cap San Marco was christened by Doris Deichmann, wife of Fred Deichmann, Managing Director of Hamburg Süd subsidiary Columbus Shipmanagement GmbH.
 
The container ships are the first of a series of six newbuildings of the new Cap San class. After her delivery, the Cap San Nicolas will be phased into the shipping group’s liner service between Asia and South America East Coast in June. The Cap San Marco is to be deployed in the same service in July.
 
Two more Cap San ships will be delivered at the Korean yard in the current year. The last two units of this series are then due to be handed over to Hamburg Süd in January 2014.
