The fleet of ships on the BG Freight Line charter which have visited the Clyde was added to with the maiden arrival of B.G. ROTTERDAM. Normally scheduled for the Rotterdam-Cork-Dublin run, she arrived from Belfast this morning having been at Rotterdam and Felixstowe prior to that. B. G. ROTTERDAM was launched as MARSTAN in 2000 by the Peene-Werft shipyard at Wolgast in Germany. She is 8,672 tonnes deadweight, and has an overall length of 132.23 metres. Owned by Reederei Unitas, who also own HERM which visited the river previously, B.G. ROTTERDAM has a capacity for 698 TEUs.
