At low water, the east berth in the Lobnitz Basin at Renfrew still appears to have quite an accumulation of silt judging by the list that the coaster JORVIK has developed in this view. This coaster, which dates from 2000 and is managed by the Flinter Group, was built by Daewoo at their Romanian shipyard at Mangalia and was named TASMAN until 2006. She is 88 metres long, with a deadweight of 3,697 tonnes. Her cargo of scrap metal was destined for El Ferrol in north-west Spain.
