Former RIALTO of Ellerman Wilson, but what name

This photo taken at Dalian in the early 1970s shows what is clearly the former RIALTO built 1949 for Ellerman Wilson. She was sold to Cypriot flag owners who renamed her SANDRA in 1970 and then sold her on to Chinese breakers where she arrived at Whampoa in May 1971

Clearly, as was not uncommon, the Chinese used her in local trade rather than scrap her but the Chinese character is very hard to decipher. Anyone got an idea was to what it might be?

The photographer is unknown but comes from Stephen Kentwell's collection

As far as I can read, it is either 铜= copper (tong) or 鋼=steel (gang)
As you can see both outlines are of equal chance, however, I seem to have seen an old Chinese freighter ' 鋼 ? ' and never saw prefixed ' 铜 '

Regards / William
