Anadyr was one of a series of sisterships that were built in Vuosaari, Helsinki/Helsingfors, Finland by Valmet Oy Helsingin Telakka shipyard during the 1980s. She was their hull number 317 and she entered service during March of 1984 for the U.S.S.R. Far-Eastern Shipping Company (FESCO) . She is designed for navigation in Arctic conditions and was fitted with an icebreaking bow. She sailed through the latter half of the 1980s and the 1990s before she was eventually sold to the Elmira Shipping & Trading SA, Greece in June of 2000 and renamed Emerald Sea. When this picture was added to the archives in 12/2002 she was still recorded as operational as such under the flag of Malta.
