STADUM outbound

Passing Cloch Point, Erwin Strahlmann's coaster STADUM was on passage this afternoon to Aviles in Spain, with another cargo of scrap metal. She was completed in 1989 by Damen at their Gorinchem yard as BARBEL, being renamed ALPHA four years later. In 1999, she was again renamed, becoming WESTERHUSEN, and took her present name in 2002. Her overall length is 89.31 metres, and her deadweight is 2,851 tonnes.
