    Re: World's OFFSHORE VESSELS

    I could have posted these pictures in several different threads, but chose to put them here. This is a very special Offshore Vessel, although classified as a "light" Mobil Offshore Drilling Unit:

            That blue framework on the stbd side of the Bourbon boat isa mobile Saturation diving system. Can't quite see which company operates it...

              I don't know either, but it looks like she is sporting one large ROV and a Saturation Dive spread side by side. They are also carrying cable laying equipment on the deck at the moment, also on Stbd side. The big AHC Crane is situated on Port side, so this one is able to handle a multitude of tasks as she is set up now.

                I inspected the sister ship, Bourbon Evolution 802 when she arrived from the yard in China back in Oct. 2012. Here is some pictures.

                The deck was bare then:

                The big crane was in the cradle:

                        Re: World's OFFSHORE VESSELS

                        Has the Normand Clipper been rebuilt, or am I mixing her up with another Normand ship?

                        Second question, right after you posted these images, I wondered what is that tall "gate" just in front of the lifeboat?

                        REINA finally got a pilot and could enter port!

                          F'd of the Lifeboat, I can see (the F'd lifeboat Davit, obviously) then a yellow Davit which might be either for stores, or judging by the way it's above some life rafts, it might be for lowering them away, then there's an opening in the superstructure that is too 'narrow' to be an ROV launching LARSON, so I'll say that it's where the Stbd Taut wire arm is stowed. (A taut wire is one of the 'references' for the Dynamic Positioning system to hold the vessel on station when it's working. Basically, it's a heavy weight on a wire, which is dropped to the seabed, then the wire is kept 'taut' on a computer controlled constant tension winch and the boat can tell if it moves in any direction by how much wire gets paid out, and in which direction. Obviously it's much more complex, but that's the basics!)
