The depot also receives large quantities of product from the Netherlands, and these arrive on a variety of tankers, apparently spot chartered for the purpose. Once they have delivered their cargo here they may go on to Saint John to load again or to Come-by-Chance, NL to load as they continue working their way around the world's oceans.
Yesterday's arrival - unseen due to thick fog - was SW Julia I. When it was revealed today in clearer conditions, it sports a distinctive colour scheme.
The ship is a typical Mid Range tanker built in 2003 by Hyundai Mipo, Ulsan. It started life as Cape Bille for German owners Cape Bille Tankschiffahrts, managed by Columbia Ship Management. In 2015 it was sold to present owners, SW Julia Shipping LLC under Monaco-based Sea World Ship Management. The 25,108 gt, 46,246 dwt ship is registered in Panama.
