The "Sivand " was the vessel which was involved in one of the worst collisions with the Immingham oil terminal in it's 40 year history. She badly damaged or destroyed a good part of one of the berths and spilled 5000 tons of crude into the river.
As you can imagine the compensation claim ran into many millions.
I forget what year it was but it must have been 1980 or thereabouts, just before she went back to the Gulf.
