The chemical and oil tanker Alioth is seen in this photograph while she was unloading jet fuel at pier 11 east in Hamilton from Texas, U.S.A., during the morning hours of April 26th, 2001.

Construction of this ship was ordered in May of 1997 at the Uljanik Brodogradiliste shipyard in Croatia and in May of the following year her keel was laid and building began. In October of that year the nearly completed ship was launched and in July of 1999 she entered service under the Liberian flag as Alioth. When this photograph was added to the archives she was still operational under this name for Novoship (UK) Ltd.
