Having spent the last few days alongside in Glasgow at Shieldhall Riverside berth, the Gibraltar-flagged coaster DITZUM had been discharging wind turbine components that had come from Germany. She was seen passing Lunderston Bay as she headed down the firth to Ayr, to load a coal cargo for Ghent. DITZUM was built by the Rousse Shipyard in Bulgaria and delivered to Briese Schiffahrt in 2005. A tween-decked cargo ship, she has a deadweight of 4,512 tonnes and is 98.85 metres long.
