Another arrival at Sandbank today, albeit one of a slightly more usual nature, was the coaster EMSLAND. Built in 1984 by Krupp Ruhrorter at Duisburg in Germany, she is on charter to Scotline and is loading a cargo of 1,100 tonnes of timber, to be supplemented by another 900 tonnes from Campbeltown, for a Norwegian pulp mill. EMSLAND is 2,200 tonnes deadweight, with an overall length of 80.73 metres.
