Bringing a cargo of grain to the Clyde, the Wagenborg coaster VIRGINIABORG arrived this afternoon and proceeded directly upriver to Shieldhall. Dating from 2001, she is, like most of her owner's fleet, registered at Delfzijl. She is a sizeable vessel of some 9,600 tonnes, and has an overall length of 132.2 metres. Her hull was built in Romania by Daewoo Mangalia Shipyards, then towed to Holland for completion by the Volharding Shipyard.
