For those that are interested, a documentary was made about her salvage, which is available here:

I think the photo shows her after her tow from the rocks, being discharged in the Caland Canal at Europoort. I have no recollection of her being discharged at Vlaardingen, which used to have a bulk terminal, but probably with not enough draft for a 130000 dwt bulkcarrier.
