Also arriving today was Spliethoff's 'S' class freighter SCHELDEGRACHT, which last visited the Clyde on her owner's Northwest Europe-East Coast USA service in March.  She was making her way upriver at a rather sedate pace today as she was awaiting the arrival of a tug from Finnart after it had been berthing the tanker NORDSTRENGTH. Her cargo handling elevators are enclosed in the large housings on her starboard side, details of which can be seen here.
