I served my electrical apprenticeship on this ship and later as an Electrical Officer at sea. Would like to know what happened to the ship??

Added by David Smith on 03 September 2010.
She was renamed TRIDENT ARC in 1987 for charter purposes but reverted to IBN BATTOTAH in 1991. She went to breakers at Chittagong arriving on January 16 2001.
Most of the class are now scrapped. There are a very few Clyde built ones still left along with some of the Korean built versions. With few exceptions they remained with the Kuwait Shipping Co/ UASC for all their careers.
