Another container ship has arrived on the Clyde for lay-up. The Liberian-flagged ship CIMBRIA, owned and managed by the German company Ahrenkiel, arrived from Rotterdam and initially anchored off Irvine before moving upfirth to the Tail of the Bank on Tuesday afternoon. Due to move to the Great Harbour shortly, CIMBRIA has already spent several weeks at anchor in the Moray Firth off Cromarty although since then, she does appear to have been back in service. She was built in Korea by Hyundai Mipo in 2002, and has a capacity for 2,824 TEU boxes. She is 221.2 metres in length and has a deadweight of 39,358 tonnes.
