An unusual visitor to the Clyde, apparently helping out on the WEC container service as WEC VAN GOGH was so far behind schedule, was the Cypriot-flagged ship NORDSTRAND, owned by the German Klaus Oldendorff company. This ship, which has sailed under a number of different names while employed on a variety of charters, was built in 1993 at Gdansk in Poland and she has a deadweight of 34,082 tonnes. With an overall length of 205.9 metres, NORDSTRAND can carry a maximum of 2,280 TEU containers.
