Maersk Antares, a Post-Panamax containership owned by Danish shipping giant Maersk Line, arrived at San Vicente Terminal Internacional (SVTI) on February 28, becoming the ship with the largest capacity to have docked in the Chilean terminal.

Maersk Antares, which features a length of 338 meters and a width of 45.5 meters, was built by South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in 2007.

The 9,034 TEU vessel arrived at SVTI from San Antonio.

Highlighting the boxship’s arrival, Eduardo González, SVTI’s CEO, said: “this is a double milestone: the historical arrival of the ship with the greatest capacity and its mooring in our new dock, inaugurated last year.”

According to González, the new dock increased the terminal’s capacity by 40%.

Maersk Antares and another ship, Southern Star, were serviced at the same time, terminal operator SAAM said.

Operated by SAAM and SSA Marine, SVTI started operations in 2000.
