Irma loading grain today

The Irma is here loading grain and should depart today. Owned and operated by the Polish Steamship Company, it was built in 2000 and makes heavy use of computers. The ship uses an unmanned engine room, although an alarm will sound in the Chief Engineer’s room if a human is needed. Photo taken May 29, 2002.
