ELBETOR, a member of the Strahlmann fleet and a sister of HOLSTENTOR, seen before on ClydeSights, arrived at the 'Bravo' anchorage this morning, heading up the river later today to load scrap metal at Shieldhall. The 1990 Portuguese-built coaster, manned by the Polish Stemag Marine crewing agency, has a deadweight of 3,432 tonnes, and is 87.0 metres long. ELBETOR has carried three previous names, being completed as PORT FARO, then becoming BALTRUM in 1993 and LADY CLARA two years after that. She was given her present name in 2005.
