New build tanker Stenaweco Julia L (IMO 9661247, GT 29940, 2013) was moored in the main docks, above is the best picture I could get of her.
She is one of three tankers owned by Sterling Ocean Shipping, which is majority owned and controlled by Alterna, with technical management provided by Fleet Management. She has been placed under long-term time charters with
Stena Weco (a joint venture between Stena Bulk and Weco) a shipper of petroleum products, edible oils and chemicals. The Sterling MR tankers represent the first in a series of STX next-generation ECO MR tanker designs.
I also have the honour of being the first person to put her photograph on Shipspotting.
Crude Oil Tanker Peary Spirit (IMO 9466130, GT66563, 2011) was moored at Tranmere, I believe that she was due to leave for Skagen in Denmark on Tuesday whilst Western Ferries new build Sound Of Soay could be clearly seen in the basin at Cammell Laird alongside her sister ship Sound Of Seil. As far as I know neither vessel yet has an IMO number although Sound Of Seil has been on sea trials in Liverpool Bay.
On the way home I saw Bulk Carrier Arethusa (IMO 9318591, GT 40224, 2007) unloading opposite the container terminal at Seaforth.
