I have to say it - even some of those modern cruise ships looks better, and the exhibition surroundings as photographed is not too exciting either. The model is probably excellently done though, and the ship probably fully served its purpose. It might even have well deserved its name - was there something groundbreakingly innovative about her?

Hi stein,

she is/was a first conversion in 2005 from a VLCC (tanker, COSMO GALAXY, IMO 8420440, built 1986) into a VLOC (ore) which probably was the reason to do a model of her but it was said that she experienced strength and operational problems, broken up in 2011.
I add an article about that issue:

Btw, the name is HEBEI (not HEIBI, typo I guess) INNOVATOR, named after the Chinese province.

Rgds, Manfred
