A sistership of SUURHUSEN which sailed yesterday afternoon, A.B. DUBLIN is loading scrap metal at Diesel Wharf for the Spanish smelters at Seville. She dates from 1997, when she was launched as SAAR DUBLIN for Bockstiegel, though she was renamed before completion. Her hull was built in Romania by Santierul Naval Galati S.A. but completed by Damen in Holland. She is 89.69 metres in length, while her deadweight is 4,211 tonnes. One of her other sisters was seen in King George V Dock on a previous occasion.
