It is an old question but I think the tanker in the background is LUKOMORYE (1965 / 21563 gt / IMO 6507309), ex Soviet LENINO, and beached at Alang, 10 Jul 2002.

Also very interesting seems the old looking superestructure in the background. Does anybody know which ship is this one?

Great series of photos from Alang, Zahan. Thanks for posting.

I think this class of vessels were built for Sea Containers, and were named 'Strider' class. The combination of container gantry and ro-ro access to the main deck through the accommodation block made them well suited to ports with poor container handling infrastructure.

Union Steamship Co of NZ had one (could have been a bit smaller than Santa Marta) named 'Union South Pacific', which traded to the Pacific Island ports from Auckland.

Regards, Stuart
