She was built in China by Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group at Shanghai as BELUGA PASSION trading for few months were she was renamed as BELUGA LONDON trading until 23rd November, 2011. She was sold to Hansa Heavy Lift and renamed as HHL RICHARDS BAY and in 2019, she was acquired by the Dutch Shipping Owner Spliethoff and renamed as PAUWGRACHT.

Upon her entry to Valletta she was assisted by Damen built tugboat WENZINA to berth at Magazine Wharf, since Laboratory Wharf was occupied by the Grimaldi Lines ropax EUROCARGO VENEZIA. Later on after 1800 hrs she shifted backwards to Laboratory Wharf.
