Hamburg Süd celebrated the christening of 'Cap Corrientes' in the U.S.
For the first time in its 142 year history, German shipping line Hamburg Süd, has celebrated the christening of a ship in the U.S. The ceremony to name the 3,800 TEU, 51,000 dwt, container vessel Cap Corrientes was held on August 23rd in the Port of San Francisco, an apt venue as the ship naming ceremony at Pier 35 coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Port with which Hamburg Süd has a long association. The company started offering regular liner services to and from California in 1957, connecting the Pacific Coast with Australia and New Zealand, the route the new vessel will be deployed on. In the early 1970s it was Hamburg Süd that introduced container ships with a large reefer capacity into the trade between the US East and West Coasts and Oceania. The Cap Corrientes was built by Taizhou Catic Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Ltd in China for the account of Vilmaris Management GmbH of Hamburg/Germany and is on a long-term charter with Hamburg Süd.News schreiben
