Mount Everest - another day, another ship

Yesterday's occupant of anchorage #10 in Bedford Basin sailed in the evening and early this morning another similar ship arrived to take up a nearby station. Both ships are products of the Hyundai Mipo shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea, and are chemical/product tankers.
Today's visitor is Mount Everest, registered in Liberia, and owned by Frisia Dortmund KG of Germany, but managed by Donnelly Tankers of Limassol, Cyprus. Built in 2010, it is a ship of 23,313 gross tons and 37,817 deadweight tonnes.It operates in the United Product Tankers pool of Hamburg, Germany. That fleet consists of nearly 50 tankers, of which 31 are of the "handy" size of Mount Everest
The purpose of its visit is for hull cleaning, which is estimated to take two days. The work is being done by divers.
