This elegant ship was intended to begin a 7 vessel series of B-442 general cargo ships from Gdańsk Shipyard,
based on very similar design B-40 for USSR: https://www.shipspotting.com/photos/3419923
The names were supposed to honor big building sites of Polish socialism - new factories, power plants, etc.
Eventually, plans were changed and only "Konin", "Świecie" and "Ursus" remained at PLO, 4 ships were sold to Turkey and two more were chartered by Chipolbrok. So, altogether nine ships were built:

B442/I/1 KONIN, IMO 6915441, 1968, for Polish Ocean Lines;
http://www.shipspotting.com/ships/ship.php?imo=6915441

B442/IV/2 GENERAL A.F. CEBESOY, IMO 6923943, 1969, for D.B Deniz Nakliyati T.A.S.(launched as ŚWIECIE);

B442/II/5 GENERAL Z. DOGAN, IMO 7023386, 1970, for D.B Deniz Nakliyati T.A.S.(planned name: PUŁAWY);
http://www.shipspotting.com/ships/ship.php?imo=7023386

Superstructure more 'rectangular', with 1st deck extended to stern and radar mast integrated with funnel:

B442/I/6 LUCJAN SZENWALD, IMO 7044287, 1970, for Polish Ocean Lines (chartered by Chipolbrok);

Back to initial form of superstucture, but aft mast with derricks moved to front end of Hold. No.5:
