Lying at anchor in Irvine Bay for a few days now has been the BP Tanker BRITISH ROBIN. Already having discharged cargoes of crude oil at Finnart twice this month, the 113,782 tonne deadweight tanker is currently awaiting further orders for her next cargo. She is one of the numerous 'Bird' class of ships, which were all built recently in South Korea by Samsung Heavy Industries at their Koje shipyard. BRITISH ROBIN was completed in September 2005.
