Big Ships Up Close: Cosco Shipping Aquarius clears the quay and gets under way; 12 June 2019

Cosco Shipping’s latest sea-monster, Aquarius, is cleared from the quayside by the tugs and her own thrusters, and swings to line up for the start of the Beach End Turn, at the harbour mouth. During her relatively short stay at Felixstowe, her draught has reduced by around 1.7 metres, an indicator of the amount of cargo she has discharged.
