With a cargo of timber awaiting export at Sandbank, the Gibraltar-flagged coaster FRI SKIEN was seen as she entered the Holy Loch on Friday evening. FRI SKIEN is owned by a Norwegian company and is managed by the Kopervik Group. She was built in 2000 by the Peters shipyard at Kampen in the Netherlands, and was originally named POLAR SUN. In 2004 she was renamed FRISIAN SUN before taking up her current name in March this year. She is 3,792 tonnes deadweight and is 89.25 metres in length.
