#ShipSnapshot – Lady Adriane berthed at Wicklow Port this morning in the wake of another short-sea trader, the 89m Bounder which at the weekend was loaded with scrap metal, writes Jehan Ashmore.
It was a busy scene as trucks shuttled between the Bounder and a nearby recycling plant. A Liebherr crane was employed to grab the scrap and lower into the hold.
Also on the Packet Pier were logs (round timber) stacked high and awaiting removal. This cargo had been discharged from Ceg Cosmos, a smaller ship that called last week on a typical passage from Scotland.
Both these cargoes were handled through local shipping agent, R.F Conway & Co. (Conway Port) which among trades also handles timber products, notably through Scotline. The shipping company have recently taken on a time charter of Lady Adriane. Afloat will have more on this to report.
On completion of loading the scrap metal, Bounder departed Wicklow on Sunday.
The 3,223dwt vessel arrived yesterday at Liverpool, where the scrap-metal was to be discharged in Alexandra Dock Branch No.2.
