The Turkish bulk Carrier ORHAN EKINCI was seen on Friday morning as she made her way upriver from her overnight anchorage at Brodick. Carrying a cargo of animal feed, her last port had been Dublin. The 186.2 metre long vessel, built in Japan in 1982 as WORLD AMITY, and renamed GREAT AMITY three years later, had a deadweight of 37,607 tonnes. She became ORHAN EKINCI in 1995 when she was acquired by her present owners.
