Hamburg Süd Christens Cap San Antonio

Hamburg Süd Christens Cap San Antonio

On Friday, September 26, Hamburg Süd christened its latest container ship “Cap San Antonio” at the Cruise Terminal of Le Havre, France, with customers and business partners. The “Cap San Antonio” is one of a series of six new ships of the “Cap San” class built for Hamburg Süd at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea.

All newbuildings of this class each have a nominal slot capacity of 9,600 TEU, making them the shipping group’s largest vessels. With 2,100 container plugs, they have the largest reefer capacity worldwide, thereby underscoring one of Hamburg Süd’s core competences in the transport of refrigerated cargo.

The port of Le Havre, which joined with the ports of Rouen and Paris to form the HAROPA network in 2012, will be a starting point for the “Cap San Antonio” from which the vessel will be heading for Santos, Brazil. She is to be deployed in the liner service between Europe and South America East Coast.
