I am looking for photos of the wreckage of Ro-Ro cargo TOLLAN (IMO 7815674) that capsized in the Lisbon harbour in 1980.

No trace of this vessel is to be found in the Shipspotting database.

The only photos I found can be seen below:

They have an historical value. Having this vessel covered also at the website would be a plus for the community, IMHO. Can anybody help?

Hi jdap!
The "Tollan" was part of a series of four Tackler-type RoRos, built from the Kasado shipyard in Kudamatsu. The Series consists of: "Tackler Arabia'' IMO 7800239, "Tajin'' IMO 7800241, "Tollan'' IMO 7815674 and "Tackler Dosinia'' IMO 7815686
Maybe it helps a bit,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

Many thanks for the info. Everything helps, of course.

By the way, we are talking about a rather small cargo vessel here, with:

GT:   2800 t
DWT:   4628 t

Her casualty inside the Lisbon harbour was a most unusual event. It brought about the total loss of an almost brand new vessel. Hence my interest in this case.

Best regards,

Jose
