The German coaster FRIDA spent today at anchor with her cargo of wind turbine parts, after arriving very early this morning from Esbjerg in Denmark. FRIDA is owned by Nimmrich & Prahm, and was built at the Rousse Shipyard in Bulgaria in 2005. She has an overall length of 100.72 metres, and a deadweight of 4,800 tonnes. This afternoon she moved up river, not under her own power, but under tow, accompanied by one of Clyde Marine's tugs, and WARRIOR III.
