Operating for Handytankers K/S, the Liberian-flagged tanker NORDSCOT arrived this afternoon to load a cargo at Finnart. NORDSCOT was built in 2001 in Korea by the Daedong Shipbuilding Co, and is  managed by the Ahrenkiel Group. She has a deadweight of 35,770 tonnes and an overall length of 183 metres. In the foreground, the little diving boat CLUTHA, based at Kip Marina, was sitting above the wreck of the Swedish ship AKKA, which sank in 1956 after running onto the Gantocks.
