Year after year
Traditionally the cruise season of Sartori & Berger in Hamburg starts with a call of Cunard. This year the first ship we welcomed was Queen Victoria. In addition to two further port calls we also expect Queen Mary 2 five times in the Hanseatic city.
Our colleagues of the agency and stevedore department are looking forward to the next visit in April and wish a safe journey!
At the beginning of September we said “¡Adiós! Pullmantur Zenith” for the last time for now. During the last three years Sartori & Berger provided the 80,000, mostly Spanish speaking cruise passengers with an all-inclusive package.
Monday morning around 5 a.m., an approx. 120 meters towing unit consisting of the two tugs “Kiel” and “Holtenau” as well a lock gate left Brunsbuettel on route to Kiel. Also on board were four men of Sartori & Berger’s runner crew.
Yesterday CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery called the port of Hamburg for the second time. As ULCC (ultra large container carrier) – one of the largest container ships in the world – it was moored at Burchardkai.
On Monday afternoon the Celtic Explorer moored in the southwest port of Hamburg. The 65,5 m long and 15 m wide research vessel called the port of Hamburg for about 2 days to load measuring instruments and research equipment. Furthermore a TV team went on board to report on the upcoming research trip. As agent Sartori & Berger was responsible for the clearance and took care of all formalities referring to the call.
During his summer tour the Federal Chairman of the “Junge Union” Paul Ziemiak (member of the German parliament) from Nordrhein-Westfalen also visited Kiel on the important topic maritime economy. Jens Broder Knudsen organized an informative day in the port for him, i.a. he showed the handling of Color Fantasy at the Norwegenkai together with the managing director of Color Line in Germany Dirk Hundertmark.
“An extraordinary vessel – Stena Natalita – moored on Wednesday morning at Hamburg port. With 246,3 m LOA and 43m BOA it is almost twice as big as most tank ships. For the port agents of Sartori & Berger even more exciting. Ships´ supply, crew change, waste disposal and four bunker barges at Shell Kattwyk berth were included in less than 48 hours.”
