Another Brostrom tanker, BRO GOTHIA, visited the Clyde this week, and visited the Royal navy fuel jetty at Garelochhead. She was reported to be bringing a cargo of waste oil from the Falkland Islands for recycling. BRO GOTHIA was built in Turkey in 2003 as MARISP, but joined the Brostrom fleet in 2007, at which time she was renamed. She is managed by Marin Ship Management, like most of the other Dutch-registered tankers in the company's fleet. With an overall length of 119.1 metres, BRO GOTHIA has a deadweight of 7,517 tonnes. She was pictured heading for Pembroke.
