German container line Hamburg Süd christened the 10,600 TEU container ship Cap San Vincent at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s yard in Okpo, South Korea on September 16.
The Cap San Vincent is the most recent vessel of an identical group of three, with its sister ships  Cap San Juan and Cap San Lazaro being delivered to Hamburg Süd earlier this year.
With an overall length of 331 metres and a width of 49.4 metres, these “Cap San” boxships are the largest in the Hamburg Süd’s fleet.
The new ship is to be phased into the company’s Asia-South America East Coast Service in late September.
“Although the competition for the carriers in this market is immense, we are convinced that there are further growth opportunities for Hamburg Süd. We shall, therefore, be expanding our liner network in the region and using the port of Busan as a gateway for cargo from and to Korea and as a central hub port,” Dr. Arnt Vespermann, Member of the Executive Board of Hamburg Süd, said.
