Hamburg Süd christens final 'Cap San' vessel

Hamburg Süd christens final 'Cap San' vessel
Hamburg Süd has christened the third and final vessel in its “Cap San” series.

The Cap San Vincent built at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) is 10,600 teu in capacity with 1,000 reefer plugs.

Sponsor of the “Cap San Vincent” christening was Susanne Neiro from K+S Transport (Kali + Salz). 

At the naming ceremony Arnt Vespermann, member of the executive board of Hamburg Süd, underlined Korea’s importance for Hamburg Süd: “Although the competition for the carriers in this market is immense, we are convinced that there are further growth opportunities for Hamburg Süd. We shall, therefore, be expanding our liner network in the region and using the port of Busan as a gateway for cargo from and to Korea and as a central hub port.” 

The “Cap San” vessels are the largest in Hamburg Süd’s fleet and the Cap San Vincent will be phased into its Asia-South America East Coast Service in September.
