Canopée cargo ship docks in French Guiana for the first time

– Canopée has completed its very first transatlantic crossing and has reached Pariacabo harbor in French Guiana.
– The new-generation sailing cargo ship has been custom-designed to ship Ariane 6 launcher components to Kourou.
– Canopée will be fitted with sails. Its hybrid propulsion uses a combination of sails and traditional engines.
– This first crossing is part of a series of sea trials to qualify harbor infrastructure and Canopée’s future shipping route.
– The use of Canopée will ultimately halve the costs of shipping Ariane parts and reduce the environmental footprint.
