Finnish shipping company Meriaura has added the 2002-built general cargo vessel Friendland to its fleet.

With a cargo hold of 7,200 cu m and a breadth of 15 m, Meriaura said the ship is capable of carrying logs and timber, as well as project cargoes.

Meriaura added that the vessel joins its fleet on a long-term time charter agreement at a time where the need for cubic tonnage is growing.
