Hamburg Sud Christens ‘Cap San Lorenzo’ (Argentina)

Together with customers and business partners, Hamburg Süd yesterday celebrated the christening of its container ship “Cap San Lorenzo” at the Exolgan Terminal in Buenos Aires. The “Cap San Lorenzo” is the fourth container ship in a series of six newbuilds for the company in the new “Cap San” class.

All ships in this class have a nominal slot capacity of 9,600 TEU and are some of the largest ships belonging to the shipowning group. At the same time, the “Cap San Lorenzo” and its sister ships – which each have 2,100 reefer slots – are currently the world’s largest ships for reefer capacity. The transportation of refrigerated goods such as fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish is one of Hamburg Süd’s core competences.

The Sponsor of the “Cap San Lorenzo” is Vivian Spohr, whose husband Carsten Spohr is a member of the Advisory Board of Dr. August Oetker KG. Since its delivery from the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan (South Korea) in July 2013, the “Cap San Lorenzo” has been sailing the Company’s liner service between Asia, South Africa, and the East coast of South America. Straight after the ceremony, the vessel joined the Hamburg Süd liner service between Europe and the East coast of South America.
