GERMANY's Hamburg Sud has celebrated the naming of its containership 7,100-TEU Santa Teresa at the Cruise Terminal in Rotterdam, the seventh newbuilding of a series of 10 identical vessels which feature 1,600 reefer slots.

This is one of the largest ships ever built for Hamburg Sud, noted the Shipbuilding Tribune. Following her delivery at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in Korea in September, the Santa Teresa initially operated in Hamburg Sud's service between Asia and South Africa/South America east coast.

In January, it was then phased into the shipping group's Europe-South America east coast service. The ship was named after a town in the Brazilian province of Espirito Santo, west of the port city of Vitoria.

The Santa Teresa is the only ship of the Santa series to be christened in Europe. All other nine sister ships of this class were, or will be, named in South America or Asia. The last three ships of this series - the Santa Ursula, Santa Barbara and the Santa Ines will be delivered in summer 2012.
