    Re: Details of ships and boats

    Thank you for the detailed photos. I don't know if anyone else on the board likes so much detail but I certainly do.

    I would hate to be the crew if I ever get aboard; "what does this do?" "what's that?" "can I go in there?" ...

        Let me take you on board the pride of the Brunei fleet, the Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) Belite Barakah.

        Built in Malaysia in 2008 and flying the flag of Brunei Darussalam, she is equipped as a Multi-purpose vessel, able to support Diving, ROV, Maintenance operations and pure Accommodation/Flotel role. (191 bunks)
        She has 4-point mooring system and DP-2 Class.
        The Helideck has actually never been used:

          View of the work deck from the Bridge:


          And the other way around:


          View from the Bridge is somewhat limited by the Helideck Supports:

            One of the four Anchor Winches:

            Situated below deck.

            One of the Main Propulsion Thrusters:


            The Main Switchboard for power distribution:


            Two RO Watermakers to slack the thirst of nearly 200 people:


            Time for some maintenance during idle period:


            Not too many pictures this time since my assignment didn't call for any.

              More for those who like details, especially of towing vessel.
              Here is some pictures from a fairly new Anchor Handling Tug (Built in China 2009). The boat may be new but the level of technology is far from what is found on larger Offshore Vessels built in Europe, or for high end Operators.
              (Some pictures from a sister vessel was shown in the Tug thread earlier)

              No external pictures, since she was moored in the middle of a bunch of other tugs, with a "HK Barge" moored on Port side, but here is at least a view of the deck and superstructure:


              The Forecastle deck with the Windlass:

              No Mooring drums.

                A colleague was testing the Emergency Fire Pump:

                Portable Diesel driven pump. (Small ship so this is OK)

                Swing Rope Gantry on either side for Personnel Transfer to other vessel, or to Platform boat landings:

                  More sophisticated equipment:

                  The other half of the fire bucket is on the opposite side.

                  When you see electric fitting packed up in plastic, you know they are of high quality:

                    The Bridge equipment is at least a little more sophisticated and up to modern standard:







                    But the lay-out does not indicate much understanding of the functions by whoever designed the panels.

                      Ok, Ok, I know, you want to see the Engine room.
                      The Main Engines are 1900 Bhp each:




                      3 Generators:




                      The Electric Switchboard is in the open Engine Room:

                        Re: Details of ships and boats

                        The Engine Room is quite "roomy":

                        There is little else to use the space below deck for.

                        The Bow Thruster is direct Diesel driven:

                        No need for electric motor and complex variable frequency control here.

                        With the exhaust out through the side:

                        If a pasty Bow Fender gets in the way, just remove a piece.

                          The Oily Water Separator looks like something out of a Technical Museum:

                          But it function and meet MARPOL requirements.

                          At the other end, the Steering Gear:


                          Somebody must have had a lot of time on their hand to paint circles around every "finger hole" in the floor plates:

                          Colour coded to indicate the function of the valve below. (No computerized remote control here)

                          No walk-in Freezer/Chiller here:

                          One Household chest freezer for each type product is much easier to manage.

                          PS> Some of the pictures are from the identical sister ship.

                            thanks for this report ombugge,
                            but i wonder;
                            you are checking vessel out for transportarion and insurance,
                            making images of that what cabn be use when something happen.
                            do you not get any problems for placing them here,i mean not every shipowner wants that the whole world to know what the situation is onboard,speccially when its bad.
                            new build vessel owners don't want that complicated or total new machinery is to found on the net taken by someone who was on board,and what whad to be topsecret
                            best regards Thijs

                                Again, thank you for the detail photos. I especially liked the nice and clean engine room.
