"Shat Alarab" (AMPTC) was the first tanker this size to return to Bremen up Weser river. The "Bonn" launched while
"Shat Alarab" was out to Northsea on test runs, then it returned and this was the only time 2 Supertankers near
400,000 tdw keeled next to each other for final completion at the AG Weser yard. They left within weeks of each
other after sitting together for about 3 months. After the "Bonn" finished its first charter contract of three years term,
it also returned empty to Bremen for warranty work. These were the only two Supertankers to ever return to Bremen.
