The 1986-built, 28,610-dwt, 18,625-grt, ice strengthened, oil products tanker Mirza is seen in this photograph while she was underway off Calshot, England on June 1, 2002. Photo by Douglas Cromby.

She was built in Kherson, U.S.S.R. by the Kherson Shipyard for the U.S.S.R. - Georgian Shipping Company and she entered service as Marshal Gelovani. She sailed as such until September of 1994 when her name was shortened to Gelovani by her owners and this name lasted until September of 2000. At that time the name Mirza was applied by the Georgian Shipping Company and in March of 2001 she was sold to Lake Pal Shipping Company Ltd. When this picture was added to the archives in 12/2002 she was still listed as operational as Mirza under the management of Columbia Shipmanagement BV, Holland.
