Another load of pellets

The Dutch ship Flinterdijk arrived today for a load of wood pellets. This versatile ship, built in 2000, can carry a variety of cargoes, including containers (370 TEU, 25 reefer plugs) and bulk. She is fitted with hold ventilation which is necessary to keep the pellets in prime condition during what could be a very rough Atlantic crossing.
Flinter Shipping has quite a variety of ships of varying sizes, most in the distinctive grey and red colour scheme.
Their website is worth a squint-look for the photo taken from the bridge of the Flinterdijk while at sea in the North Atlantic.
