Yet another vessel moving on the Clyde on Thursday, one of the busiest days the river has witnessed for some time, was the small products tanker NORDPORT, seen here passing McInroy's Point on her way upriver to Clydebank with a cargo of fuel from Rotterdam. NORDPORT is operated by the German Oldendorff company, and flies the Cypriot flag. She was built as ER ELBE but was renamed in October 2008, six months after she was delivered from her Korean builders. She is 128.6 metres long, and has a deadweight of 13,126 tonnes.
