Hapag-Lloyd names new 10,500-TEU vessel

 

Hapag-Lloyd last week held the naming ceremony in Hamburg for the Guayaquil Express, the fourth of five newbuildings in its 10,500-TEU class.

 

The vessel was ordered in 2015, built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in South Korea, and sails between Europe and South America. With a length of 333 metres and a width of 48 metres, the ship is designed for the new locks of the Panama Canal. With it, Hapag-Lloyd underscores its leading role in the Latin America trade, said a release.

 

By deploying the ship, rather than bringing any new tonnage into the market, Hapag-Lloyd is replacing two older vessels with each of the new state-of-the-art ones. As a result, significantly more efficient ships will be deployed between North Europe and South America West Coast without noticeably increasing capacity in the market. Like the Guayaquil Express, all vessels in the series are named after ports in South America as a sign of the close ties, the release added.
