    The Alucia 2 has broken layup and are now moored at Prestebrygga in Aalesund:








    No idea whether she will finally be heading to USA for conversion, or there are some new plans. (I will find out though)

            At 7:35, "... continuous rock cores ...".

            Then you see one - "continuous" eh?

            Yes it is a "continuous" core, although not unbroken. If the rock it is taken from has cracks it will show up like this.
            Actually, that is one of the things they are looking for.

            Ombugge, yes I know. I just think they could have chosen a better term than "continuous" but it is set in concrete [sic] now.

          "Normand Skude" on her way south to Haugesund this afternoon.

            Beautiful foliage as a background on that last image! Perfect timing for a sail-by!

                  WAOW! That is one massive and complex vessel!

                  Ship-technology has certainly come far since the age of sailboats!

                  Had to google SKANDI ICEMAN as I got curious about her... built in 2013 apparently.

                  Skandi Iceman is a modern deepsea anchor handler designed for versatile and reliant field work in harsh environment.

                  The vessel is built with a wide 24m beam for good general stability and in particular, safe anchor handling operation.

                  Comfort class, an advanced AHF frame, large rig chain capacity, FiFi I+II, NOFO 2009, SPS, ice classification and NMD rescue approval for 300 pax is the key features for this modern and fuel efficient vessel.

                        Just a couple of iPhone-images from Kristiansund today. Both with a HDR filter attached
                        First one from quay #9 at Vestbase Oilfield Service Base towards west. Looks like a front is arriving from the ocean.

                        Second one from the area around Thon Hotel at Innlandet. The blue one is ex. Rem Gambler, now Normand Drott. The orange one to the left is Normand Prosper and the one to the right is Edda Fauna

                          Great quality despite iPHONE.

                          Are these offshore vessels in some kind of lay-up or are they just "visiting"?

                            The Normand Maximus is one of the largest and most sophisticated Subsea Construction Vessels in the world.
                            Here is why:

                              Fascinating!

                              Vertical Lay System (VLS): It's clear from the animation at 5:57 - 6:02 that the cable/pipe must be fed at the same rate as the ship's speed-over-the-ground, otherwise, the cable would tend to become puckered or stretched.

                              Ombugge, how deep is your insider knowledge? What is the control system for the VLS?

                              Measuring/controlling the feed rate isn't at all difficult but not so speed-over-the-ground. Do they actually measure speed-over-the-ground or is satellite position information accurate enough for this? Or is there some other trick that allows the cable to be fed "on demand"?
                          Working...
