Hamburg Süd Names Its Third San-Class Containership

Hamburg Süd christened its third container vessel pertaining to the new “San” class on Thursday at the Cuenca del Plata terminal in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The new ship class in the Hamburg Süd fleet has a nominal container slot capacity of around 9,000 TEU and with 1,370 reefer slots for refrigerated containers.

The San Vicente was built at the Korean yard Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan. Following her delivery in early November of last year, she was phased into Hamburg Süd’s liner service between Asia, South Africa and South America’s East coast. This service is also operated by her sister ships San Clemente and San Christobal.

Hamburg Süd’s five liner services, including the Asia – South Africa – South America East coast service with four slings – call at Montevideo. More than 400 times a year, ships operated by Hamburg Süd and its Brazilian subsidiary Aliança dock at the port.

Montevideo handled a total volume of around 776,000 TEU from Hamburg Süd last year, nearly every tenth box loaded was a Hamburg Süd container.
