The place of CONELBE on the X-Press Container Line service from Rotterdam to UK and Irish ports appears to have been taken by this new ship, X-PRESS MULHACEN, which spent only a couple of hours at Greenock today. Delivered in July 2007 to her German owners, K & K Schiffahrts GmbH as K-WAVE, this 131.5 metre long ship was renamed in October, and transferred from her original Antigua and Barbuda flag to the UK register. She was built in China, by the Zhejiang Yangfan Ship Group, and has a capacity of 700 TEU. X-PRESS MULHACEN arrived this afternoon from Belfast, and sailed again less than three hours later for Southampton.
