Singaporean bulker 'Orient Iris'

Singapore-registered bulk carrier "Orient Iris" (54,958 deadweight tons) nearing completion at Kawasaki Heavy Industries' Kobe Shipyard (Hull-1711) on 31st October 2013. She is due for delivery in December and is one (possibly the last, according to rumours) of a long line of standard handysize bulkers constructed at this yard.

She was launched on 3rd December (I'll be submitting some photos of this) so I think my estimate for her delivery above is probably wrong, more like early 2014.
