SAAM Towage Peru handles largest vessel to call on west coast of South America

September 7, 2023

SAAM Towage Peru handled the largest vessel to reach the west coast of South America. In particular, Alexander Von Humboldt, belonging to CMA CGM and part of the ACSA 1 service connecting Asia and South America, docked at the Port of Callao.

The ship measures 396 meters in length, 53.6 meters in beam and has a capacity of 16,590 TEUs. Due to its size, the vessel required the assistance of three tugboats with a bollard pull capacity of 70 tons.

The vessel will continue its route to Asia and is scheduled to call at the ports of Buenaventura, Posorja, Lazaro, Yokohoma, Busan and Shekou.

SAAM Towage Peru country manager Cristián Cifuentes commented, “Our fleet is equipped with high-powered tugboats, and our crew is highly trained in servicing large vessels.”
