The ship was built by Xinian Shipbuilding, Wuhu, China in 2001 as Pine, a name it carried until 2003 when it became Cornelia. The ship is fitted with four cranes for cargo handling, and carries clamshell buckets on deck to handle bulk cargoes. (The top of one of the bright red buckets is visible on deck between cranes 3 and 4.) The ship is owned by MST Mineralian Schifffahrt Spedition und Transport GmbH of Schaittenback, Germany and registered in Liberia. It comes in at 16,807 gross tons, 24,516 deadweight tonnes.
MST has a website, but regrettably it does not detail the ships it owns. However from other sources it appears to own about a dozen ship, and charters many more, including a sizable Dutch based coastal fleet.
As of this time of writing there is no scheduled departure time, but I am sure they would like to be out of here before Christmas.
