XT Shipmanagement has taken delivery of the 3,765 teu container ship CAP CAMPBELL, which the Haifa- and Tel Aviv-based non-operating owner charters to Hamburg Süd of Germany. The vessel was built by Zhejiang Shipbuilding at Ningbo, a yard of the Sinopacific Group.
Exact design specifications of the 228m long and 37m (15 rows) wide ship have not been provided yet, but the CAP CAMPBELL is believed to be (near-) identical to earlier SDARI 3800 types delivered by Shanghai Shipyard and Taizhou Catic Shipbuilding. All of these vessels are to trade with Hamburg Süd or its affiliate Alianca. Recently-delivered ships of the series are the PEDRO ALVARES CABRAL and CAP CORTES.
The new CAP CAMPBELL today phased into the Japan and China to New Zealand service, jointly offered by Hamburg Süd with MOL, Coscon and NYK. The newbuilding replaces the 3,586 teu charter ship HS BERLIOZ, which Hamburg Süd is expected to return to her owners this week.
