Another new ship has appeared on the MacAndrews container service linking Greenock with Bilbao. Seen arriving from Rotterdam, the feeder ship PACHUCA has taken over from BELIEVER on the weekly service. She has only recently reverted to the name that she was initially intended to carry, although since being launched she has been named LYS POINT for another charter. Built in 2005 by Detlef Hegemann Rolandwerft GmbH, she is 139.8 metres in length, has a deadweight of 9,236 tonnes, and can carry up to 750 TEU containers. She is owned by the Harren & Partner Group.
