The vessel, built in 2012, made its first ever UK dock when it entered the Cromarty Firth on Wednesday afternoon supported by Global Port Services.

Nigg Energy Park said that Seven Borealis would have a four-day stay at Nigg before heading back out to sea. The vessel has a gross tonnage of over 48,700 and sizes up at 182m long with a breadth of 46m, making Nigg one of the few ports in the UK able to accommodate it.
