Ortolan Gamma arrived last Friday for ACL filling in for Atlantic Star which is currently at Gdansk, Poland, likely for a work period.
of note, ACL is reflagging its ships. the UK Seafarers union RMT issued a statement:
The ACL fleet was registered in the Port of Liverpool from 2016, when the Atlantic Sea was christened by Princess Anne, the first in Liverpool for fifty years. Yet earlier this week, ACL re-flagged one of its sister ships Atlantic Sky to the Maltese register – a Flag of Convenience and the biggest shipping register in the EU. ACL’s owners Grimaldi Group have warned that the rest of the ACL G4 ships on the Red Ensign are also likely to be re-flagged.
ACL has been threatening to reflag it ships since 2018 over concerns over no deal Brexit. Several other shipping lines have been doing the same. the full release can be found here
