A close-up view of the bulk carrier CAPE CARMEL, sent to ClydeSights by a good friend, as she departed from Hunterston yesterday evening. She is 290.0 metres in length, with a beam of 46.0 metres, and a full load draft of 18.32 metres. CAPE CARMEL is driven by a single screw, powered by a 7 cylinder Burmeister & Wain engine producing 21,347 bhp and was built at the Sasebo shipyard in Japan. She was launched at the very end of December 1995, being completed a few weeks later.
