The VLLC tanker Haven was built in Cadiz in Spain and launched in 1973 under the name Amoco Milford Haven. She went i different routes in the Persian Gulf before she in the late 1980s was chartered by the Cypriot company Troodos Shipping. 11.April 1991 she laid outside Genova and loaded oil when suddenly the cargo caught fire. Five men immediately perished in the fire and two days later the burning wreck had to be taken under tow todwards shore to ease the rescue work and limit the oil spill. She broke in two parts on the third day and the bow disappeared in the deep, while the rest sank of the hull on a depth of 33 to 80 meter outside Arenzano.
