A fleetmate of another cement carrier, CEMSEA, which visited the river earlier in the year, was seen as she passed McInroy's Point on Sunday. CEMLUNA, also managed by the Brise Shipmanagement group, had been discharging cement at King George V Dock and was sailing for Eastham. She was built in 1991 by Sheepswerf Slob at Papendrecht in Holland and was originally the coaster ANJA II. In 2002 she was renamed LEA and in 2005, was converted in a Polish shipyard to become the self-discharging cement carrier CEMLUNA. Flying the Cypriot flag, she has a deadweight of 3,715 tonnes and an overall length of 89.5 metres.
