The motor tanker LIQUID SUCCESS arrived on the river this morning, and proceeded to anchor at the Tail o' the Bank to await an improvement in visibility before heading upstream to Clydebank. She was built in 1999 in Germany by Lindenau at their Kiel shipyard, and was named SILVER RIVER before taking her present name in 2005. She is 145.61 metres in length, with a deadweight of 13,300 tonnes. Flying the Liberian flag, LIQUID SUCCESS is now managed by Elmira Shipping and Trading, a Greek company.
