HERM

Another new name on the Clyde today, in the form of the container ship HERM, seen here heading past McInroy's Point on her way to Greenock Ocean Terminal. Built in 2004, her hull was constructed at the Daewoo Mangalia shipyard in Romania, then towed to Holland where it was completed by Bodewes Scheepswerf Volharding at Foxhol. Capable of carrying up to 750 containers, she is 134.60 metres overall, and has a deadweight of 9,368 tonnes. She was arriving today from Rotterdam and Southampton, and appears to have encountered heavy weather on passage. Note the light blue topped container which has broken its lashings! She is a near-sister ship of a regular visitor, ENDEAVOR, and is operated by the German company, Reederei Unitas.

I understand the ENDEAVOR has been replaced on the run by the PETUJA which called for the f1ist time at GOT last week
