|The Beluga Indication should be arriving here this morning to load soybeans. It may leave before the day is over. This ship is part of the I-series of ships in the Beluga Group, a shipping company located in Bremen, Germany. It was built in 2000. Two other sisters, the Beluga Inspiration and the Beluga Independence, were both built in 2001. None of these ships have ever been here. The Beluga Endurance was here in September, 2005. You may guess which Series it belongs to. It has many sisters, all built within the last 3 years. They are the Beluga – Evaluation, Expectation, Energy, Enterprise, Endeavour, Eternity, Emotion, Efficiency and the Beluga Elegance. There are 4 ships in the P Series. They will be built in 2009. Above, the Tatjana was discharging steel coils on Sunday night.
[Many changes have come to the Beluga Fleet in 2011.]
