OOCL Belgium and Friends at Gladstone Dock

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2014


Orient Overseas Container Lines' container ship OOCL BELGIUM [39,174grt / 1998] is a regular visitor to Merseyside. She unusually seen in Gladstone Dock on the morning of Saturday January 11, 2014. This being a somewhat unusual berth for a container ship. Only a few days earlier she had featured in a YouTube video showing on board views taken during a very lively Atlantic crossing just a few days before where the ship took a 40 degree roll.  [Click Here to view] Comments on the videosift.com web site where the video also appears state "Unconfirmed reports indicate the the OOCL Belgium may have sustained some cracking and she is currently being inspected in Liverpool". This presumably accounts for her long stay in port. She departed from Liverpool on the morning tide of January 12, 2014.
