  • World's OFFSHORE VESSELS

    Offshore Vessels from around the World

    Here is an image of a brand new ship about to be completed at Ulsteinvik. The image was taken on January 22nd 2009 and shows the new vessel Siem Marlin. It was really difficult to find a good location to shoot this vessel, with trees and houses in the way.

    She has got some pretty massive deck cranes installed...

    Another image of the same vessel from across the bay, at full zoom and freehand: therefore not as crispy sharp as I would have wanted:

      Another vessel for the oil industry under building at the same yard in Ulsteinvik: I'm quite confident the name of this new building may have been "Rem Poseidon".

      Also this image was taken at full zoom, and is therefore unfortunately a bit off the sharpest edges of the scale. That I apologize naturally, but I still hope you enjoy having a peak.

        If you study the last image a bit closer, you can see that they have started constructing the support-beams for the heli pad on the bow.

          I think I have posted one of these images before, so I apologize if you have to make you see it again...

          The image was taken at Ulsteinvik on January 22nd 2009, and shows the X-Bow vessel Island Constructor.

          She looks rather strong and 'buff' to me.... it's a very interesting design and this was actually the very first time I have ever seen a vessel with this bow with my own eyes.

            Before I end for now, I also bring you the Normand Ferking in Kristiansund. This vessel has been photographed by Sterkoder already, so this will be a reunion image for those that likes watching these kind of ships.

            I have to say, that when walking on the dock besides the ship: she is massive: much larger than I had actually imagined, these ships are monsters of the seas. Naturally, they have to be strong, they are built to take upon themselves some pretty heavy weather at times: the North Sea is well known to be a rough area at times.

              I love these sort of vessels. They just look so sort of powerful, like they really mean business. I particularly like the 'Viking' vessels, i think the yellow and red colour schemes suit them so well. I love the look of the Viking Athene, though im not too sure about the look of some of the newer vessels like the new Viking Queen, for me having the superstructure at the back does not hold the same appeal. I also think the 'X' bow ships look a little strange, but im getting used to them. To me a traditional bow looks so much nicer, but i can see how the 'X' bow must be a more efficient. I can see it must be much better when heading into a heavy swell. I should imagine that they would not 'slam' as much as a conventional bow would?.
              I think all of you people that live in areas where seeing these types of vessels on a daily/weekly basis are very lucky, i would love to be in a position where i could see these vessels for myself. I must say a big thanks to all that post these photos, i love seeing them.

                  And here are some pictures I took today, of the brand new special designed tug/supply "Maersk Trader".
                  This little "guy" serves among other installations, the floating rig "Leiv Eriksson" right now situated in the fjord right by my home.

                    Not totally in compliance with the thread, but anyway..., here's "Leiv Eriksson" in Freifjord close to my home. The red supllyvessel is "Skandi Foula" and the dark blue one is "Rem Provider"

                      I think the close-up of Rem Provider and Leivv Eriksson is really cool. It's quite obvious that we are talking sizes here.

                          That's correct. And let me show you "Skandi Captain" alongside the drillship "West Navigator" at Vestbase. Picture taken last year and really show size....

                            "Normand Ferking" leaving Kristiansund harbour in April 2008 for Vestbase


                            Here she's about to dock at Vestbase (MAN...., do I love this thread!!!!!)


                            Stand-by vessel "Guard Valiant" leaves Kristiansund in March 2008

                              Brilliant photos! That drill ship is MASSIVE!, makes the 'Skandi Captain' look like a model. Awesome pieces of equipment! Oh i wish we had these sort of vessels in my part of the world. There is talk of building the worlds biggest off shore wind farm in the Bristol Channel, if that ever happens i might then get to see some of these brilliant vessels. I live in hope!
                              Sterkoder, you are so lucky to have all of this on your doorstep!
