With the Américo Vespúcio the Hamburg Süd subsidiary Aliança christened the third of four identical 3,800 TEU container ships for its cabotage fleet on October 22, 2013 in Pecém (Brazil). The naming ceremony was held as part of a customer event at the port of Pecém. The Sponsor of the ship is Consuelo Dias Branco, Member of the Senior Management of Moinho Dias Branco, one of Aliança’s customers.

Before the Américo Vespúcio, Aliança had already held naming ceremonies for two ships in the Explorer series for the Sebastião Caboto (May 2013) and for the Fernão de Magalhães (September 2013). This newbuild series allows Aliança to progress with the modernization of its cabotage fleet. The Américo Vespúcio is named after the explorer Americo Vespucci, who explored large parts of the East coast of South America during his travels in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Like the first two newbuilds, the Américo Vespúcio was also built at the Shanghai Shipyard Co., Ltd. and was delivered on August 23, 2013. After completion of import formalities the ship was loaded with the first containers for the A liança cabotage service on October 14, in Manaus. With each ship having a slot capacity of 3,800 TEU, the ships of the Explorer series have almost twice the number of container capacity as the previous Aliança ships employed on this service. The naming ceremony for the Pedro Álvares Cabral will take place at the start of next year in Brazil. 

Technical data of the Américo Vespúcio:
