Passing Coulport on her way to the tanker berth at Finnart, the Croatian-flagged tanker HRVATSKA had arrived on the Clyde and lain off Bute at No 3 Anchorage for a week while she was undergoing main engine repairs. Built in Croatia by the Brodosplit Shipyard, HRVATSKA was delivered to Tankerska Plovidba in 2005, and is a Suezmax crude carrier of 166,447 tonnes deadweight with an overall length of 280.98 metres. Her cargo was loaded in Nigeria and she is presently employed as a member of the Heidmar Group's Blue Fin Suezmax pool.

She may have been undergoing engine maintenance, but there was also an issue with there being not enough Finnart shore ullage to accept her cargo, due to a planned maintenance period being carried out at the Grangemouth refinery, and not enough crude from previous cargoes being consumed
