Hamburg Sud Christens "Santa Rita"

Monday, July 11, 2011

On July 6, as part of a customer event, Hamburg Süd christened the container ship “Santa Rita” in Sepetiba (Brazil). The sponsor of the “Santa Rita” was Hayfa Konrad, wife of Joachim A Konrad, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of Hamburg Süd.

The “Santa Rita” is the third newbuilding of a series of ten identical container vessels each featuring a slot capacity of 7,100 TEU and fitted with 1,600 reefer container plugs. This puts them among the largest ships ever built for Hamburg Süd. The “Santa Rita” will be deployed alongside the “Monte Tamaro” as the shipping group’s second training ship. On board of these ships the shipping group is training its future generations of ship officers, engineers and seamen for the steadily growing fleet. The parallel deployment of two training vessels represents a new departure in Hamburg Süd’s 140-year history.

Since her delivery at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) in Korea at the end of May 2011, the “Santa Rita” has been operating in Hamburg Süd’s service between Asia and South Africa/South America East Coast (New Good Hope Express).
