    Ships in Aalesund 2019

    The new year starts a bit slow, but here is the new Coastal Authority vessel OV Ryvingen out trying her equipment close to home base.
    She won the Motor Ship Award for innovative and environmental friendly design: https://www.kystverket.no/Nyheter/20...ts-nye-fartoy/
    (No lack of space and comfort for the crew)

    This should be a really interesting thread as the year goes by

      Nice!

      Quite up here in Trondheim too, but I guess the year will bring some more ships as soon as spring arrives...

      I attended a thinking workshop in Oslo last week, and one of the attendants was working in Kystverket. Not sure if he was on this vessel or not.

        The same ships alongside at Stornespiren for quite some time now. Nearest is the Seismic Support Vessel Rig Adbromeda with the Seismic Survey Vessel Geo Barents (Same company)
        On the opposite side of the finger pier, Russian trawler Arctica:


        The very large Russian trawler up a bit closer:


        Too cold and slippery to go any closer.

          Also in Aalesund today; M/F Glutra on stand by for some days now
          The seiner/trawler Straumberg doesn't appear to know whether to tie up with Port or Stbd. side alongside. here is a compromise:


          PS> Maybe they pay less wharfage fee that way??

            Oh, look, there i Glutra taking a short rest.

            Now, if we could only get a fresh update on K. Not that she has changed a lot since she left us a month ago.

            Not much ships to show yet. Not because there aren't ships in Aalesund but it is too cold, wet or slippery (take your pick) to wander around town looking for ships to photograph.
            Here is the few I have so far. Starting with the "Bethelship" Elieser 6:




            The coastal tanker Hatlebakk Bergen at Skansekaia (for whatever reason):




            Some ships have been sitting in layup at Stornespiren since last year:

              The rest is ships and boats seen in Borgundfjorden from the comfort of our veranda, starting with my old friend Buddy heading off for another assignment somewhere:




              Coastal seiner Albacore heading to Holsfita with a load of herring:




              Unknown coaster of some sort (live fish or feed carrier??):


              Famous local seiner Gunnar Langva heading towards Vedde:

                  Surprise to see the Betelship still operating and "alive"... she's been a round for a while, a long while.

                  It's been a while since my last update here, but here is a few from the last month or so.
                  Fjord 1 ferry Hjorundfjord heading in to Aalesund 07.March:

                  A bit chopped off, but they look much the same at both ends.

                  Coastal Authority tug Boa Heimdal on standby in Aalesund 09.April:

                    Nice. I'm not 100% sure right now, right on the mark, but I believe the HJØRUNDFJORD (and STORFJORD) was christened at the same time and day in Poland back in 2009. I remember walking on board her, she was far from completed. Pretty sure it was this one.

                          The Bruvik is kept busy these days, taking tourist for a quick look around on Hjorundfjord, the least exploited fjord in Sunnmore:




                          Seen alongside at Stornespiren today:

                          The graffiti in the background is spoiling the view.
