Another Norwegian vessel was seen today heading out to sea, after a brief visit to Greenock. LYS-SKOG, which arrived earlier today had also been at Ocean Terminal a few days ago, bringing in paper from Norway before visiting the Irish port of Drogheda. Today's call at Greenock was to allow her to take on fuel bunkers before returning to Scandinavia. LYS-SKOG, together with other ships belonging to DFDS-Lys Line, have been regular visitors to the Clyde for some time. Described as a palletised cargo ship, LYS-SKOG has a deadweight of 3,728 tonnes and an overall length of 99.43 metres. She was built in 1990 at the Kraljevica Shipyard in Croatia, and was lengthened by 10 metres at a Polish shipyard eight years later.
