HARBURG – 1967 – IMO 6716675

phtfcplus

HARBURG (6716675), West Germany, 499 grt, completed Hamburg 7-1967 (according to Miramar). – Big bit of doubt here over the above completion date. Why?

The German coaster HARBURG is reputed to have been the first “container ship” to use the Tees, and berthed at Middlesbrough Wharf. In the photo,  on 6 June 1967 (I have double-checked that this was the correct date of my sighting), the Tees Floating Crane assists her operations. In the background the NORSEMAN is fitting out at the Furness shipyard, Haverton Hill.

Comment from Webmariner: According to IHS SeaWeb, she entered into service the day before – 05.06.1967. Assuming this is correct, she’s on her maiden voyage.

In addition, to support the photo date claimed, the bulker NORSEMAN (IMO 6721084) was launched from Cammell Laird & Co (Shipbuilders & Engineers) Ltd., Birkenhead, on 20.05.1967; and delivered from Furness S.B. Co. Ltd. , Middlesbrough, on 14.11.1967.
