CANOPUS J

A new ship for the Clyde which has been operating on MacAndrews' services for some time (although not on the UK/Iberian routes), arrived this afternoon. CANOPUS J, built in 2004 by Detlef Hegemann Rolandwerft at their Berne shipyard, spent some time under the name LYS BOX while on a two year charter to Lys-Line, before reverting to her original name in mid-January 2007. Operated by Jüngerhans Maritime Services, CANOPUS J is 9,193 tonnes deadweight and this 139.88 metre long ship can carry up to 750 TEU containers. Her previous employment for CMA CGM has been on the MacAndrews service between Felixstowe, Hull and Gdynia, which she commenced in December last year.

My info is that both WERDER BREMEN and CITY OF OPORTO are being replaced by CANOPUS J. and VELAZQUEZ on a more regular basis on the service which includes Greenock, Liverpool and Dublin calls.
