Towering over HEBRIDEAN PRINCESS berthed astern of her at Ocean Terminal, the German container ship ANDROMEDA J is a new vessel to visit Greenock on the MacAndrew's weekly service to the Iberian peninsula. The 11,052 tonne deadweight ship had arrived earlier from Liverpool and was loading for Bilbao. She was built in 2006 by the Hegemann Rolandwerft at Berne, near Bremen in Germany. Note the German colours painted on the vents on the after side of her funnel, an unusual touch.
