Heavy load carrier Meri in Øresund

The picture shows heavy load carrier Meri (105,4 x 18,8 m) approaching Helsingborg at about 1.30 P.M. today on its way to Nyköping. The load looks interesting, but I have no idea what these big "tanks" are used for. 

Meri joined the fleet of Finnish Gaiamare Ltd last year. 

This is how the builder, STX Turku shipyard, describes the vessel:

The multifunctional vessel is an ice classed open deck carrier intended for transporting in the Baltic Sea region demanding project cargo, such as offshore wind farm structures as well as containers and bulk cargo such as energy wood. The Aker Arctic DAS TM vessel is able to operate bow and stern ahead in ice conditions that reflect to Finnish-Swedish Ice Class 1 A notation.
