One of Alstership's coasters, JOHN-PAUL K., arrived this afternoon and headed upriver to Shieldhall to load a cargo of scrap metal for Seville. Like her sister CLARA K., this vessel was built in Bulgaria by the Rousse Shipyard, and was delivered to her owners, K&T Holland, in 2002. She is 90.25 metres long, with a deadweight of 4,247 tonnes. Managed by Flagship Management Company, she is registered in the Netherlands at Delfzijl.
