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.
