Final Hamburg Süd "Monte" class ship christened

Hong Kong: German container line Hamburg Süd christened the last vessel in its set of 5,552teu "Monte" class containerships in Hong Kong. Following the naming ceremony, the "Monte Aconcagua" was phased into Hamburg Süd's Asia - South Africa/South America East Coast Service (New Good Hope Express).
The company is slated to add three further 5,900teu "Rio" class vessels to its fleet until the end of the year. This type is designed to be one bay longer than "Monte" class vessels. The "Rio" ships are to be phased into the shipping group's Europe - South America East Coast Service, gradually replacing the "Monte" vessels, which will then operate in the Asia - South Africa/South America East Coast Service.  [02/06/09]
