#ShippingReview - Jehan Ashmore reviews the shipping scene from among the following stories of the past fortnight.

Scotline the short-sea timber products operator has taken a time-charter of Lady Ariane from a Dutch owner. The cargoship sailed from Varberg, Sweden to Wicklow Port.

A pair of 87m newbuild cargoships of the mixed flagged fleet of Arklow Shipping made calls to the Port of London. Irish flagged Arklow Cadet was joined on the Thames by the brand new Dutch flagged Arklow Valour having anchored off the Kent coast: see Port of Dover freight record.

Across the North Sea at Emshaven, the Netherlands is where newbuild Arklow Valour had undergone seatrials. More recently the bitumen tanker Iver Ability docked there and not Delfzijl as expected.

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council executive will undertake a full risk assessment into transfer ownership of Dun Laoghaire Harbour to the local authority, it has emerged.

A first batch of tower sections for wind turbine projects arrived at Port of Waterford for GE Wind on board BBC Orion (2007/7,223grt). A further two projects cargoes are due to the port this year.
