Hamburg Süd Christens Container Ship SANTA RITA in Sepetiba, Brazil

 

On 6 July 2011, as part of a customer event, Hamburg Süd christened the container ship “Santa Rita” in Sepetiba (Brazil). 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).

Length between perpendiculars: 286.8 m

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
