    Sold from BB to Fredrikstad and the company Borg Maritime AS in april 2010, renamed "Borg Viking". Both the company and vessel sold (again) to Tromsø in august 2011, still named "Borg Viking". And still performing towing duties in the northern coast of Norway

    Just before it was sold in 2010, this video was made ​​by TVVest in Stavanger:

      Nice to see Lars again. Also nice that she is still working at 120 years of age.
      It still makes Ruggen the oldest active tug in Norway, if not in the WORLD!!!
      Any better????

              Thanks.
              Yes, I think they're going to Rotterdam (according to the AIS) with the barges (that's used as weights for testing of the cranes on board the "Saipem 7000", therefore the wire slings on the lower barge).
              When they arrived witht the tow in Mekjarvik a couple of weeks ago, they arrived from Esbjerg in Denmark if I remember correctly.
