  • Singapore Port, Ships & Rigs

    Since I'm unable to post anything in the General Maritime thread I start a new thread here.

    The other end of Singapore. This is Tuas Basin as seen from the PPL Tuas Yard at Tuas Crescent:

      Is ST Marine diversifying into Livestock Carriers, from Navy Ships ??

      Seems there is atleast one Cattle Carrier, from what I can decipher !!

        This ST Marine at Tuas, which is a ordinary shipyard specializing in repairs and maintenance of Dredgers and Offshore vessels, but handle all kinds of ships and the odd Rig, within their limitation.
        In this picture you see TWO Livestock Carriers.

        I will be posting more picture from here soon. (Taken while on a rig being towed from PPL Tuas Yard to Jurong West Anchorage a few days ago)

      Although the General Interest thread is now usable I will post more pictures from Singapore Port here so as not to overload that thread again immediately. (Better used for other things)

      This Monday I was on board the newbuilt Jackup rig Hakuryu 12 belonging to Japan Drilling Company Ltd., Tokyo, during tow from PPL Tuas Shipyard to the loadout location F5 at Jurong West Anchorage (AJW). Naturally, I took some pictures of the ships, boats and rigs seen along the route.

      Early morning in Tuas North Basin:

        A wee little correction, DP World became DDW Paxocean and now has become PaxOcean !! If you meant the one at Tuas Crescent .. (next to Damen,.. )

        In the first picture I think I see the Jacson 18, if I can recall correctly !

        Well, it used to be Pan-United Shipyard, but has had many name changes; DP World took over and named it DDW Pan Ocean.
        Even more names since PCL (Robert Kouk) took control a couple of years ago.
        It was DDW Pax-Ocean last I was there.

        Yes you can see the Crane, Superstructure and Helideck of the Jascon 18 in the background, but only if you know what you are looking for.
        She has been there in near completed condition for several years now.

        The Work Barges in front are at the NewCruz Yard and belong to Swiber.

        Panorama views of Jurong West Anchorage, Monday, 16. March, 2015:

        I tried to splice this into a 360 Panorama, but it did not work satisfactorily.

          I think it is a good idea to have this thread just for Singapore port, as you always have enough images to justify it. These photos are very interesting - and some of them, like #4.2, quite beautiful - because of your viewpoint high up somewhere on the rig! And that one at #5.6 is the one Pakarang view I do like.
          The panoramas at the end are excellent, don't worry about a 360 degree one, those you have shown give a good impression of the scene as you rotate.

                The Commentator on CNA said they had "Manned the Rail", but I can see no sign of that in your pictures.

            • #10
              ombugge, with the massive down pour, manning the rails or not wouldn't have made any difference

              The F16s doing a missing man formation had been aborted, and flown at a higher altitude !!!

              Patrol vessels RSS Dauntless and RSS Resilience will sail from both ends of the Singapore Strait along the southern coastline past key coastal landmarks, before meeting and sailing in formation towards Marina Bay.

              With the state flag at half-mast, they will fly a black flag used for mourning with signal flags representing the letters L, K and Y.

              As the procession passes the Padang, the ships will sound three prolonged horn blasts of 10 seconds each.
