1958: Built as SCOTTISH PTARMIGAN for the Scottish Tanker Co. - by John Brown, Clydebank.
Tonnage: Ca. 18.300 dwt.
1970: ELENI V. ( N J Vardinoyannis Co. ).
In 1978 on a passage from Rotterdam to Grangemouth the tanker collided - during a fog in the North Sea with a French bulk carrier. ELENI V. thereby was cut in two.
The forepart rolled over and drifted off - later to be recovered by the Royal Navy and to be blown up. The aftpart was towed to Rotterdam by five Dutch tugs to discharge her oil cargo in Europoort.
The accident which had no casualties among the crew caused major oil pollution of the coasts of Suffolk and Norfolk.
Later the aftpart of ELENI V. was towed to Santander, Spain to be broken up there.
