Torm Esbjerg

The sophisticated chemical and products tanker Torm Esbjerg (Hong Kong flag) anchored in the harbour last night awaiting a berth at Imperial Oil. The ship was built in 2008 and displays the unique colour scheme of of Torm Lines.
She can handle a variety of petroleum products and chemicals, which are handled through a complex manifold system. The detail shot shows twelve symbols on her hull at each of the different colour coded hose connections directly above on deck.
The ship has her accommodation ladder and pilot ladder rigged, but the pilot ladder is held up out of the water to prevent icing (and unwelcome visitors.)
