The feeder ship AMSTELDIJK arrived this afternoon, having spent a little time anchored at Brodick whilst awaiting her berth at Greenock Ocean Terminal. This ship, built by Weihei Shipyard in China, in 2005, is managed by WMS Shipping of Holland, and flies the Cypriot flag. With an overall length of 99.62 metres and a deadweight tonnage of 4,711 tonnes, she can carry up to 366 TEU. Previously employed on a service from Rotterdam to St Petersburg, she is currently on charter to BG Freight Line (a subsidiary of Peel Holdings Ltd, owners of Clydeport) for their Belfast-Greenock-Rotterdam service.
