The interestingly named products tanker TRIPLE A was seen passing Dunoon as she made her way upfirth from her overnight anchorage at Brodick towards Finnart, where she would backload a cargo of refined grades for Plymouth. TRIPLE A, a vessel of 13,040 tonnes deadweight, is operated by NGM Energy, a Greek company whose ships have been seen on the Clyde in the past - some are named after seasons (SUMMER, AUTUMN) - and which were built recently in Korea. She dates from 2006 and, like her sisters, flies the ensign of the Marshall Islands.
