A part cargo of animal feedstuff arrived this morning aboard a Russian freighter, owned  and operated by the Far-Eastern Shipping Company. FESCO ANGARA, a ship built in Korea by Hyundai in 1985 as ESPERANSA for the Greek Comninos Brothers company, was later renamed ESPERIA before being acquired by the Russian Government in 1985 and being renamed ANGARA. She gained the current prefix to her name in 2007. FESCO ANGARA is 186.7 metres overall, and has a deadweight of 37,155 tonnes. She is registered in the Marshall Islands, like many of her owner's fleet, while ship management is in the hands of Fesco Wallem, of Hong Kong.
