Following her latest call at the NATO fuel jetty in Loch Striven, where she has spent the past couple of days, MAERSK RAPIER moved today to Garelochhead. This 34,985 tonne tanker, built in 2000 as ROBERT MAERSK but given her new name shortly after delivery, is operated on behalf of Maersk by Handytankers K/S. She remains on charter to the MoD, delivering cargoes of fuel not only to the naval facilities in the United Kingdom, Gibraltar, Falkland Islands and Souda Bay, Crete but it is also used to supply aviation fuel to Cyprus, Ascension Island and Falkland Islands. When not needed for defence commitments, MAERSK RAPIER is made available to commercial charterers.
