She actually arrived Alang on the 29/6/2003. The photo date must be wrong, unless Glenn is using the American style (Jester)

Very strange for a Danish or any Scandinavian country to allow things to get that bad.Even if she was flagged out surely JL still had some control.
p.s.I see the date on the download caption is '93

She would have been on charter to Lauritzen at that time. Like most of the major reefer operators, Lauritzen had a large fleet of both owned and TC/pooled tonnage.

So sad to hear that such a reputable company let things slip to that extent, whether the vessel was company owned or on T/C etc, its a very bad reflection on the company.

Harley, if you look closer at the date I said she arrived at Alang, it says around 01/06/03 that information I got for her record on the Shippingdatabase.com site. I knew that date was not entirely acurate hence I said Around, meaning it arrived there some time either earlier or later than the 01/06/03.

Don't know who the crews living conditions became so bad, I know she was in port for an extra couple of days and loaded a lot of fresh food while they were here. I know there was a lot of issues with the personal hygine facilities, I remember seeing that on the news one night.
