Norwegian chemical tanker 'Essi Silje'

Norwegian chemical tanker "Essi Silje" (18,112 deadweight tons, built 1968 by Chantiers Navale de la Ciotat, Le Trait & owned by B.J. Rudd-Pedersen of Oslo) off Bahrain, March 1976. She was built as bulk carrier "Sabina" for Union Navale & Soc. Navale Caennaise of Dunkirk; sold 1970 to Johs. Presthus Rederi of Bergen & renamed "Helene Presthus"; bought 1972 by Rudd-Pedersen & converted to a chemical carrier the following year. In 1982 she was severely damaged by an engine room fire; subsequently her aft part was scrapped & the remainder joined onto the aft part of another vessel (whose fore part had been scrapped) which resulted in a new "Essi Silje"; this one became the "Aegean Mariner" in 1992 & was scrapped in India three years later
