While the main activity on the river on Monday was of a military nature, this small tanker arrived, heading for Clydebank. VITTA THERESA was built in 1991, a product of the Brado-Papendrecht shipyard in Holland, and is owned by Herning Shipping. As built, she had a deadweight of 2,294 tonnes, but in 1997 she was lengthened by 20 metres, giving her an overall length of 97.5 metres and a new deadweight of 2,925 tonnes. Flying the Singapore flag, she was bringing a cargo from Purfleet on the Thames, and arrived at Brodick Bay on Sunday evening.
