A reefer with an interesting destination
This is the reefer Sierra Modoc (former Frio Poseidon) in Øresund this morning. The 134x18 m ship is on its way from Kronstadt in Russia to Nouadhibou in Mauritania.
Let´s hope that the destination was not chosen because of this:
The port of Nouadhibou is the final resting place of over 300 ships and hence the world’s largest ship graveyard. Unlike the arrival en masse of ships at Mallows Bay, here the number of craft has built up over time, as corrupt officials accepted bribes from boat owners to allow them to dump their vessels in the area.
