More usually seen carrying coal from Hunterston to Northern Ireland, the self-discharging coastal bulk carrier MORNES arrived on the Clyde this morning shortly after BRO GLOBE. Her cargo was road salt from Kilroot, the Northern Irish port that she normally takes coal to. MORNES, on long-term charter to Clydeport, is operated by Citadel Shipping, a Swedish company. A description of her cargo-handling equipment can be seen here.
