Moving from her anchorage at Irvine to the coal berth at Hunterston, the bulk carrier IRON KNIGHT was seen making her way down the Largs Channel as INTREPID CLIPPER, another large coal ship, heads off towards Ailsa Craig and her next cargo. IRON KNIGHT was built in 2004 as BULK TWO by Tsuneishi in Japan, and in 2007 was renamed IRON KNIGHT. She is registered at Majuro in the Marshall Islands, and has a deadweight of 76,429 tonnes. Her Greek operators, Quintana Maritime Ltd, have secured a charter for her until late 2010, at a daily rate of US$22,400. Technical management is provided by Maryville Maritime Inc, a subsidiary of Excel Maritime Carriers.
