#GuinnessTanks – Another shipment of Guinness fermentation tanks arrived into Dun Laoghaire Harbour, where Sunday strollers watched the cargoship's arrival, from the length of the East Pier, writes Jehan Ashmore.
On this occasion, cargoship Keizersborg (1996/6,142grt) operated by Dutch owners Wagonborg Shipping, berthed at Carlisle Pier. This is the second delivery of the 'project' cargo, with another batch due of the stainless steel cylinders, each weighing 30 tons.
They are bound for St. James's Gate Brewery, where the plant is undergoing a major upgrade costing €153m.
As previously reported, the first shipment was transported on board Myrte (2008/6,120grt) which too had sailed directly from the same Dutch port.
Also in port was the HSS Stena Explorer, which after the cargoship's docking, departed for Holyhead, so to complete the return leg of the daily operated single round-trip service.
