With snow much in evidence on the Cowal hills in the background, Wagenborg's 2010-delivered cargo ship AZORESBORG passes Ocean Terminal on her way downriver from Shieldhall, where she had been discharging a cargo of salt from Tunisia. AZORESBORG, eleventh ship in a class of self-geared multi-purpose cargo ships built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding at their Shanghai yard, is 143 metres long, with a deadweight of 17,323 tonnes. In addition to a variety of bulk cargoes, the Dutch-registered ship can also carry up to 959 TEU containers.
