                    she came here on a vessel but sails back on her own power. well halfway.
                    why??? she has all the time in the world to get in the Persian gulf?

                      She arrived on the HLV Target from Singapore via Cape of Good Hope,which is more than twice as long as the distance from R'dam to AG via Suez.
                      Floating on her own keel she is just barely able to pass under the Suez Canal Bridge

                      To be honest, i haven't look for of her speed is, but i don't think it,s fast. But it,s the prise tag then. To do it on her own.

                      AH III is able to make >10 kts. and is presently doing 9.6 kts. off Tunisia.The fuel consumption is high due to her hull form (L/B factor)
                      Dry transport on a HLV is faster but costly. Rule of thumb is is that a distance of at least 3-4000 n.miles is required to "break even".
                      But this does not take in things like Suez Canal costs, crew costs, or loss of earning due to longer transit time etc.
                      In this case the possibility of using the Suez Canal MAY have been a major factor.





                    a already signed contract of that topside instalation before of Putin's oil pipeline in the Black Sea that she came back?
                    while she is sailing back to the Black sea now

                      The contract for the Johan Sverdrup installation was signed even before the PS was delivered from the yard.
                      She got two more topsides to position later this year.

                      Yes i see that at the newsletter that it was a 3 parts deal. The last one in 2019 i thought.
                      That pipeline must have been a lucrative deal , that she sail up and down to Norway . Remove and reinstall the stinger.

                      Sorry. Yes next year.
                      Binding contract and the penalty from breach of contract MAY be a major factor.

                        Crane vessel UGLEN came in to Aalesund for crew change and stayed a few days:






                        She left\t this evening, heading to Hammerfest.

                          it's stayed a weird looking (unusual) sheerleg with that kind of bow.
                          is she built this way,or is there an old bow section of a vessel used for the barge?

                            Purpose built and able to sail unassisted anywhere, unlike most sheerleg cranes. (Uglen and AH III is exceptions)
