At the same time that ALHOLMEN was heading into the Holy Loch, this tanker, owned by Libyan Maritime Carriers Ltd, was heading to Finnart on Long Long. ASHAHDA, which was built by Sumitomo Heavy Industries at their Oppama shipyard in Japan in 2004, was named CELEBRITY until June 2007. She is 237.74 metres in length, and has a deadweight of 105,221 tonnes. ASHAHDA is currently on charter to Teekay Shipping, and was arriving with a cargo of North Sea crude from Mongstad, in Norway.
