        Not just pictures of offshore vessels this time. Most are probably aware of the crisis that is engulfing the industry and the possibilities of well know Norwegian and other Offshore Vessel owners going bust: https://gcaptain.com/norways-dnb-oil...Captain.com%29
        (The picture on top of this article is not from Norway, but from Singapore)

        An Offshore Construction and Engineering company I worked for as "Marine Adviser to the Board of Directors" for 9 months back at the early stage of development in 2007 has already gone bust. Others may follow.: http://splash247.com/wary-investors-warned-next-swiber/

        ​In those 9 months the company went public and the market value went from USD 100 Mill. to USD 1.5 Bill. as the fleet and order book increased.
        When I started the company had one charted Chinese Crane barge and a few old boats, but a lot of big plans. By the time they got into trouble they were working world wide with a large fleet of vessels and barges. (You'll find pictures of many of their vessels and barges here in CVF)

                What a fantastic rainbow picture!?!
                That ship has a gigantic "fore mast" arrangement, I wonder why?

              Some more of the brand new BOA JARL......

                I think some of the reason might be the sattelite communications on top of her, in addition to exhaust from engines also being led out up there. But then again, what do I know.

                I remember visiting the ship while she was being built, and that water canon had some truly astounding capacities. I don't think I should say what I remember because it could be faulty memories, but I do remember that a VW Beetle could pass through each second (or something like that).

                  Neither do I know, but on the "guided tour" of the ship, that is the information we were served. It could have been a Morris Mini for what I know, I'm sure they have never trying pushing a Beetle through.

                  hahahahaha.... true. Could be less, could be more.

                Back in the end of August, the EDDA FREYA came to town for some reason: perhaps a normal sight in other towns, but a rather rare sight in Trondheim:

                          Atlantic Guardian may not be a true "offshore vessel" per say... I think she is some kind of cable layer/ cable inspector or even a survey vessel.

                          I remember seeing her in Trondheim some time back and a German which was also out spotting ships that same time, stated she was doing some kind of research... and he even thought she had been rebuilt from something else in the past, even though I could not find such information online back then.
