Kapitonas Stulpinas here for load grain

The Kapitonas Stulpinas is expected to arrive today to load grain. This will be the Lithuanian flagged ship’s 11th trip to the Twin Ports since 1996. It was built in Ukraine in 1981 as part of the former Soviet Union’s merchant vessel fleet. Like many other ships in that fleet, it is now owned and operated by the Lithuanian Shipping Company at Klaipeda, a port located on the Baltic Sea. Above, the ship is assisted by two tugs as it enters the harbor in November, 2002.
