Aboard the Jedforest
Aboard the Jedforest
Milford Haven, due to the depth of its sheltered waters, has for many years been associated with the import of crude oil which is then processed in local refineries. This industry still exists but was at its peak in the 1970s when the Jedforest, at the time one of the largest ships in the world, berthed at a jetty on the south side of the inlet. Her summer deadweight tonnage was 154,900 tons (that is her total carrying capacity in summer conditions, when ships sit slightly deeper due to the lower density of warmer water). She was built in two halves, the bow and midships section at Lisbon and the stern at Gothenburg. The former was towed to Gothenburg to be welded to the rest.
