Hamburg Süd christens record-reefer capacity boxships
Hamburg Süd has christened its two largest ever container ships, Cap San Nicholas and Cap San Marco, each with the most extensive reefer capacity of any vessel worldwide.

Built at Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Ulsan yard in South Korea, the two vessels, each with a nominal slot capacity of 9,600teu, have 2,100 reefer plugs each, and are the first in a series of six newbuilds of the new ‘Cap San’ class, of which a further two are scheduled for delivery later this year.

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.
