The coaster BEKAU, which arrived on Sunday afternoon, presented an unusual sight as she passed upriver towards Glasgow - Erwin Strahlmann ships very seldom arrive on the Clyde with cargo on board! Arriving from Hamburg, this 3,701 tonne deadweight coaster is 87.84 metres overall and a member of the successful 'Rhein' class built at Komarno on the River Danube in Slovakia. She dates from 2005.
