Ships and Harbours
No: 18615   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 1986   Manufacturer: Hitachi Zosen Corp, Japan   Country: United Kingdom

French tanker sailing from Glasgow in January 1986 following repairs by one of the local repair companies. At 82000dwt she was the largest ship to be repaired in Glasgow and the firm's largest, a major achievement.
She was built in 1980 by Hitachi at Innoshima as IONIA.
Sold on again in 1988 she was renamed ALTUS and as SHANTI went on to the Gadani Beaches for scrapping in January 2008.
