Germany: First Hamburg Sud ‘Santa’ Class Container Vessel to Call at Port of Hamburg

 

On Sunday, 16 October 2011, the “Santa Catarina” will be the first Hamburg Süd container vessel of the “Santa” class to call at the Port of Hamburg. She is due to berth at the Burchardkai terminal in the evening hours and sail again late Monday evening. She features a slot capacity of 7,100 TEU and is fitted with 1,600 reefer slots, making her one of the largest ships ever built for Hamburg Süd.

The first vessel of this series, the “Santa Clara”, was delivered by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) in Korea in October 2010. In March 2011, the “Santa Clara” was the third ship of the “Santa” class to be put into service. A total of seven “Santa” ships have been delivered to date. At present six of these are deployed in the service between Asia and South Africa/South America East Coast. The “Santa Catarina” is the first ship of this series to be phased into the service between Europe and South America East Coast and now to call at Hamburg.

Sister ships eight to ten are to be delivered by summer 2012. They are all characterised by a large reefer capacity and a special design which also allows deployment in the partly draught-restricted ports of South America.

Port Finance International Mexico 2015

Given the successful gathering last June of our 1st Port Finance International Mexico & LATAM, PFI will be holding the 2nd Mexican & LATAM PFI Forum.

This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

Mexico’s port development and operations is currently thriving, with great opportunities of product and service provider companies to access high value opportunities.

Mexico’s Infrastructure investment has grown from 3% of GDP in 2000 to nearly 5% in 2012.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
