On Friday, Hamburg Süd celebrated the christening of its container ship “Cap San Antonio” at the Cruise Terminal of Le Havre, France, with customers and business partners. The sponsor is Veronika Schüller, wife of Prof Dr Stephan Schüller, Chairman of the General Partners of Bankhaus Lampe KG.

The “Cap San Antonio” is one of a series of six new ships of the “Cap San” class built for Hamburg Süd at the Korean yard Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan. All newbuildings of this class each have a nominal slot capacity of 9,600 TEU, making them the shipping group’s largest vessels. With 2,100 container plugs, they have the largest reefer capacity worldwide, thereby underscoring one of Hamburg Süd’s core competences in the transport of refrigerated cargo.

The port of Le Havre, which joined with the ports of Rouen and Paris to form the HAROPA network in 2012, is an important transhipment centre for Hamburg Süd. From here, the “Cap San Antonio” will be heading for Santos, Brazil. She is to be deployed in the liner service between Europe and South America East Coast.

Technical data of the “Cap San Antonio”:

  • Length overall 333.20 m
  • Length between perpendiculars 318 m
  • Width 48.20 m

  • Slot capacity 9,600 TEU
