Any idea of the history of this ship? She looks as though she may be a Burtisland Shipbuilding product. Know anything about her engine?

Has the pleasure of being the only North East collier to be owned by the mighty Ocean Group (Blue Funnel) after they took over the William Cory group of companies. Takeover was to acquire Cory's fuel distribution businesses. They also got three tankers, ships were quickly sold. Blue Funnel also got the bulk carriers built at Blyth for the St Dennis Shipping Co. Ltd which were on long term charter to British Steel.
