Thanks Roger, it brings back memories. I guess that as the ore terminal was run by LKAB (i.e. Swedish Ore) it was reasonable to find a Swedish Tug working in a Norwegian port.

The home port of the tug is Swedish, but her name is not. Svarta Bjørn (Black Bear) was a female railroad navvy cook in the north of Norway, who became legendary. The subject of songs, books, theater etc. That females were few up there then may have enhanced her beuty among the navvies, but you may judge for yourself; there's a picture of her in the upper left corner of this link.
