Making what turned out to be a one-off visit to Greenock, the container ship ICE RUNNER was seen passing Cloch Point on her way upriver to the container terminal. ICE RUNNER was operating on the OOCL SIX service from Southampton and Dublin, sailing from Greenock for Southampton later the same day. Chinese-built in 2008, she is owned by the German Bockstiegel company and can carry a total of 698 TEU containers. With a deadweight of 8,137 tonnes, she has an overall length of 129.6 metres.
