Empros Lines still going very strong with brand new premises in the north of Athens suburban's. Founded by late George Dracopoulos, now headed by daughter Anna and grand children. One of the very few Hellenic liner companies, since the vast majority of Hellenic dry cargo Owners are working the tramp market.

Nice little Japanese 70s designed cargo ship lasted well but unfortunately now gone.
Good place to take photos pieter - at the end of that Rozenburg isthmus between the Hoek and the iron ore terminal....
