    I don't know if she has been "Security Hardened" due to where she came from, because where she is bound (Nigeria)

      Rain and wind in Kristiansund tonight, picking up to a predicted hurricane during week-end.
      I don't know if weather was the reason for all quays being filled up with offshore vessels today, because there are summer days worse than this.
      Anyway, let me start with REM GAMBLER outside of OLYMPIC ZEUS as seen from Arnulf Øverland Gallery near Thon Hotel on Innlandet


      From the same spot, ISLAND WELLSERVER alongside Storkaia near ex. Rica Hotel. (Off topic: Ex. because Rica Kristiansund has been taken over by Scandic Hotels)


      Also moored at Storkaia is SEVEN VIKING


      ISLAND WELLSERVER and SEVEN VIKING bow-to-bow


      Thon Hotel left with Storkaia in the background


      Over by Thon Hotel is the old sundbåt NORDSUND placed on shore permanently. Used by Thon Hotel on special occations


      A new rain shower came in and it was time to jump into my car and leave Innlandet. ELDBORG and VIKING PRINCE in the background

        #1647/4. Did you notice? Placing X-bow and conventional vessels in the right order will save a lot of space at the quai!! Again HQ night shots from K'sund. Well done, Svein!

                  I'm still very impressed about the never ending amount of vessels that in each moment are located in Singapore.

                    I think I have stated several times that there are abt. 900 - 1000 vessels of all sizes and types withing Singapore Port Limits at any time, day and night, 24/7 and 365.Some for short visit to bunker, others for year for conversion etc.
                    ​This does not include the small Harbour Crafts, such as the launches used to bring people to/from the anchorages, the small wooden tugs etc. (I'm not sure if the larger Harbour tugs and Bunker tankers is counted in, as they sometime operates outside Port Limits and in the region)

                    In addition there are anywhere from 100 - 200 vessels at anchor outside port limits, but serviced from Singapore and abt. 150 vessel/day passing through Singapore Strait without entering into Singapore Port.

                    It is the busies Port in the world in overall tonnage and cargo handled, but only No. 2 in terms of Container throughput. (Shanghai handles a bit more)
                    ​It is also the world largest bunkering port at something like 44 Mill. tonnes/year being delivered and a major refining and Petrochemical hub. LNG is coming
                    Ship Repair, Conversion and Shipbuilding is major business, especially Rig Building. Keppel FELS alone delivered 21 rigs last year.

                      I will try to take a night picture of the beach, which is like a well lit up street, with a lot of lights.. that'll give a clue of how many ships are anchored around Singapore... !!

                      That is only Eastern Working Anchorage. There are as many ships at anchor off Changi, on Western Anchorage and at Jurong West Anchorage.
                      I gave it a try from the Marina Barrage the other day, but it didn't work for me. You probably have to take a series of picture and stitch them into a panorama, using one of the many tools available for free.

                        ombugge: precisely, sometimes there is too many to count !!!


                      Pieter Schelte further as Pioneering Spirit the largest ship in the world '
                      Pieter Schelte ' now goes under the name ' Pioneering Spirit '. That made the Swiss-Dutch offshore company Allseas on Monday, echoing earlier criticism of the name.
                      Allseas left Friday already know that it was apart from the choice ' Pieter Schelte ', "after the broad and wide-spread criticism".
                      The Dutchman Pieter Schelte Heerema (1908-1981) served as an officer in the Waffen-SS service. after the war, he was convicted and received a prison sentence for that. The international transport trade union ITF previously demanded that would change the name of the ship and started a petition in which Shell called the ship not to hire.
