Description:
Exploded in the Caland Canal 24/06/1981. Here shown from the port side, from a spot no longer accessible to us poor shipspotters. I do have a colour shot from this point which I will post as soon as I find the negative.
If I remember correctly she was being discharged by the two cranes (mounted on a floating platform, when the explosion took place, six people lost their lifes.
The ship is being cleaned and the hatch cover that landed on the port bridge wing has already been removed.
