Otto Hahn is one of only four nuclear-powered cargo vessels ever built.
Planning of a German-built trade and research vessel to test the feasibility of nuclear power in civil service began in 1960, and Otto Hahn's keel was laid down in 1963 by Howaldtswerke Deutsche Werft AG of Kiel.
She was launched in 1964 sponsored by Dr. Otto Hahn, a German chemist who had helped describe the generation of energy via nuclear fission, and then spent the rest of his life advocating peaceful uses for this power.
