TEXACO GREAT BRITAIN launched

TEXACO GREAT BRITAIN launched

Ready to be completed. She was not very successful I believe and was broken up at Kaohsiung in July 1981.

In late 1980 she suffered a catastrophic welding failure in a bulkhead between a cargo and a ballast tank while in ballast off the West African coast. She was fortunate not to break in half. Limped in to Dakar where she lay for about 6 months while her future was decided. She was eventually towed to the Far East for scrap.
