The 10-year-old Singapore-flagged ship arrived at Balboa on July 29 after leaving Manzanillo, Mexico. The fire injured one crewman and destroyed a generator.
Hapag-Lloyd already informed its clients about the fire and that the ship will be undergoing repairs.
Cap Jackson's port of call was Puerto Colon, where the ship was to transit the canal. However, as of August 2, the ship has remained at anchor.
Cap Jackson serves on the Mediterranean Pacific Service (MPS) service for Hapag-Lloyd and the MCPS service for Hamburg Sud. The route includes Livorno Italy through the Panama Canal and west coast North America.
