This is indeed a general cargo ship . It has a very large refrigerated cargo capacity (56,300 cu ft out of a total bale capacity of 69,500 cu ft) but is not quite a full reefer.
The IMO no is 6808870.
It was originally built in 1968 for Kawasaki Kisen KK (K-Line), Japan as PORTUGAL MARU. 1983-renamed MERKENES and then C.C.RED SEA before going to breakers at Kaohsiung 8/6/1984.
