Following the departure yesterday of PACIFIC CONFIDENCE from Hunterston, another ship arrived today with a cargo of coal. She is the Hong Kong-flagged Panamax bulk carrier JIN HE, a vessel completed in April 2006 for Jinhui Shipping and Transportation Ltd. Built by the Oshima Shipbuilding Co in Japan at a cost of $31,500,000 she is 77,250 tonnes deadweight and has an overall length of 225 metres. She was with the assistance of three tugs, AYTON CROSS on her starboard side forward, WARRIOR III starboard aft, and SVITZER MALLAIG aft.
