The MV Cederlea was a sister ship of the Birchlea. The vessel had been built in 1962 and had a working motor plus two generators. In January 1981 the ship left Aberdeen heading for the Kent coast. It arrived in Ipswich harbour on January 21st where the work to prepare a new offshore station should have continued. Due to financial problems the vessel was finally sold to the Greenpeace organisation in April 1981.
