It so happens I came across this ship in one of my Norwegian books recently - unfortunately I can't remember where I saw it just now. It said that she was in Norway with a cargo on board meant for an allied port when the war in Norway broke out. She was forced by the Germans to go to a German port with the cargo. Then, after the German attack on Russia in the summer of 1941 the Germans took over the ship and renamed her Frauenberg. I'm sure someone can give you more than this, but I just remembered having seen this piece of info, so thought I'd pass it on.
