Safmarine hosts at latest vessel naming


Shippers of refrigerated cargo were the guests of honour at the recent naming of the Safmarine Nile, the third in a series of five Safmarine sisterships built at the Hegemann Group-owned Volkswerft shipyard in Stralsund Germany.   This time the honour of naming Safmarine’s latest new vessel went to Mrs Gerthy Laham, wife of Mr Jalal Al-Laham, managing director and partner of the Netherlands-based Teeuwissen Holding BV.  
Speaking at the naming event held on Friday, May 16, 2008, Jens T. Norgaard, Safmarine’s newly appointed Global Sales and Marketing Executive, said: “This naming ceremony has provided an opportunity to celebrate the partnership between our two companies, which began in 2004 between Teeuwissen Mercosul Ltda and Safmarine Brazil.”  
Teeuwissen Group, which was formed in 1970 to import products for the pharmaceutical industry, is today one of Europe’s largest importers of meat products from South America. It is also active in the African markets.  
The Safmarine Nile is the fifth vessel to be named in as many months by Safmarine. The company is currently mid-way through an extensive fleet expansion programme, the largest in the Safmarine’s 62 year history.  The new vessel will join the Safmarine Ngami and Safmarine Nyassa, named earlier this year, on the South Africa/USA (AMEX) service.  
Also attending Friday’s naming ceremony were customers and their Safmarine counterparts from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and the United Arab Emirates, all of whom are involved in Safmarine's South American trades.  
Captain Joseph Birtles, Master of the Safmarine Nile and his senior crew - Richard Kaese (Chief Engineer), Brian Rowland (Chief Officer), Alrick Steyn (Second Engineer) and Marcin Wiacek (Electrical Engineer) – were also in attendance.
