HERON at National Gypsum Dock

Bulk cargo vessel HERON is quite a bit different from most of the vessels which loadout at National Gypsum's Wright's Cove facility. Interesting gantry cranes serve her numerous holds,would appear a time related task to off-load,but what do I know of that.Just speculating.

Overall length 182m LPP 172.4m Beam 29.0m Depth 16.13m Draught 11.59m.
Owned and Managed by SMT Shipmanagement and Transport,Limissol,Cyprus.
Previously named: STRINDA until 1985; TRINTA 85 to 92;and HERON ARROW from 92 until 2001 when shortened to HERON.
Presently registered in the Bahamas with Call Sign C6KR4.
