Whilst driving into work on the 9 May 2014 I saw Off Shore Supply Ship Toisa
Vigilant (IMO 9282132) hiding at the back of the docks against the river wall, like many other vessels she is currently working on the new wind farm off the
North Wales coast. Further down the docks closer to the City centre was the
tanker CPO Singapore (IMO 9434230) which has since left for Stavanger and as I was driving past Tranmere I saw the Crude Oil Tanker Turris (IMO 9266750) which was discharging before a planned voyage to Latvia.
The following day I saw two container ships as I was heading home along the dock road, these were Navigator (IMO 9121871) which had just entered the dock system from the River Mersey and Independent Voyager (IMO 9481532) which was in the River and just about to enter the docks. Both these ships have since left Liverpool bound for Amsterdam and Chester Pennsylvania respectively.
On the 12 May 2014 I saw Bulk Carrier Zhong Hai Chang Yun 6 (IMO 9617179) loading scrap metal in the main dock complex. Unfortunately she was postioned such that I could not get a good picture from the road due to obstructions which meant I could not get the full ship into the picture. She has since left port and is heading to Aliaga in Turkey. Work vessel Forth Constructor (IMO 8890592) was also moord up in the docks, she has been brought in to help with the new Liverpool 2 berth. Finally on my way home I saw General Cargo Ship Wilson Lista (IMO 9117208) and Tanker Amur Star (IMO 9480368) near Bromborough. Both vessels have since left the Mersey, Wilson Lista for Corpach and Amur Star for Amsterdam.
