Friday Box Boats

Two of the regular callers at Greenock visited the port today. First in this morning was MERIWA on her weekly sailing to Bilbao and Liverpool.

She was followed up to Ocean Terminal a little while later by RHEINTAL, which operates on a regular service linking the Clyde with Rotterdam, with a call at Belfast on the northbound sailing. This service is operated by BG Freight Line, a subsidiary of Peel Ports Group, owners of Clydeport. RHEINTAL is owned by Ems Fracht, a German company, and was built in Portugal in 1996. Full details of the vessel can be found in her operator's website. The above view shows the ship passing Cloch Point as she sailed for Rotterdam this afternoon.
