The second large merchant vessel that arrived on Monday morning was the Dutch ro-ro freighter GENCA, a sistership of TIMCA which had visited the Clyde earlier this year. GENCA was delivered to Transfennica in May 2007, having been launched the previous October as the third of eight ships in the class being built by the New Szczecin Shipyard in Poland. Like other ships belonging to the Spliethoff company, GENCA was on the Clyde to load a cargo of paper reels.
