Another tanker seen on the Clyde was the Maltese-flagged ship DESNA STAR as she headed downriver from Clydebank, where she had been discharging a fuels cargo from Brofjorden. DESNA STAR was built in Korea, and only delivered to her German owners, Rigel Schiffahrts GmbH, in April this year as the first of a four-ship order. She is 12,551 tonnes deadweight and has a length of 129 metres. DESNA STAR was heading for Milford Haven.
