Rio X

There is a German ( ? ) wreck referred to as "Rio X" in Nordland.
According to my knowledge this is wrong ( ref. Nordvard called by some as Rio Y ).
But can anyone help me with the correct identity to this ship?

Here is also a little texture from one of the many sites with the "Rio X" referance;
*This 320 foot cargo vessel served as a mothership for minesweepers during WWII before being sunk by a German magnetic mine in 1946. She lies outside Mortsund between 35 and 45 metres.
