The five-hold crane-equipped ship is the fifth of eight being built for AHL, with the remaining three vessels, all bulk carriers of the same size, to be delivered between 2014 to 2016. The earlier vessels acquired by the company are the smaller Victoria Harbour, Uni Auc One, Clearwater Bay and Orient Sunrise. JS
