Correct, Harald Schuldt & Co from Hamburg.
Ahrensburg, Aldenburg, Angelburg,Artlenburg,Asseburg & Augustenburg all
were built at Howaldtswerke Hbg during the 1965/69 years. All were chartered
by Salen of Stockholm and later to Standard Fruit & Steamship Co (Stanfruco)
the transport co. of the well known Dole fresh fruit brand....

I think this class of reefers built for Schuldt (if I remember well) were among the most handsome ever.

While in charter to Salen from Stockholm Sweden,
All history, all gone......
Thanks for all those great and nice ships of yesteryear...
When ships were SHIPS and no square buckets!
