Clipper Helvetia - look what just blew in

The Swiss flagged Clipper Helvetia arrived this morning (in driving rain) and tied up at pier 27.
It carries on its deck a cargo of wind turbine blades, apparently from Spain.

Built in 2013 by Sanfu Ship Engineering Co in Taizhou, China, Clipper Helvetia measures 14,941 gt / 17,551 dw and carries three 80 tonne cranes, which can combine for 150 tonne lifts. The ship's bridge is also offset to the starboard side of the superstructure.
The ship is owned by Enzian Shipping of Zurich, but operates in the Thorco pool, which includes Thorco and Clipper Projects ships.
