    I think their AIS have been on all the time, but just out of range of the limited number of AIS receivers which are listed / connected on marinetraffic.com

        She is still alongside in Fremantle. Side gates are open:


        And she has got good company:

        But which ship is that, I wonder???

        Aha!! The House flag was a dead give away:


        Does anybody know how she will be moored at Barrow Island???

          I asked a Balmoral crew member if he took some images of Finnmarken while they were together... waiting for a reply!

            Finnmarken has left the wharf and gone to Gaga Roads to give space for QM2 and Athena at the Passenger Terminal.
            Returning tomorrow 1200 hrs. to E Berth.
            ETD 1500 hrs. 17.03.2010 bound for Dampier.

              Oh yes, she's moved. Current "nearby places" are :
              • Mosman Park
              • North Fremantle
              • Peppermint Grove

                In this Norwegian article, dated a few days ago, Hurtigruten hopes for an extension on the lucrative charter of Finnmarken to Australia.

                They are very happy for the first 18 months of charter but hope for an additional 18 months to be added at a later point in time.

                  She is now at E Berth, Fremantle. ETD now 1800 hrs. 23.03.2010 bound for Dampier. Doesn't look like much activity around her.
                  Is she On-Hire, or still on mobilization fee????

                    According to an article at NRK, Hurtigruten is making a lot of money on renting out of Finnmarken: actually, they make more money on this charter than all the other ships combined.

                    Administrative Director of HRG, Olav Fjell, also states that Finnmarken will return to Norway, but that they hope she will be on charter a very, very long time...

                    In the article, it is mentioned that Hurtigruten PTY, the company set up to handle the charter from Australia, also has a contract to the charterer to provide a supply ship for Finnmarken.

                      She is still there, with every camera pointed at her. I'll capture some daylight pics tomorrow.
                      ETD is now given as 31. March, 2010, so they are obviously not in a hurry to get her up to Dampier and finally to Barrow.
                      Pindakaas may have some update on what is going on??

                        Here is the latest pics. Not much happening by the look of it:

                        She is alone on the wharf. ETD still 31. March.
                        Next Cruise ship, Dawn Princess, isn't expected until 22. March.

                          She has got company at the wharf:

                          I hear the passengers on this one smells bad.
                          No change in ETD; 31.March at 1200 hrs.

                            Is that a livestock carrier in the background?

                              She appears to be, yes:

                              If so, I hope they clean the wharf properly before the Dawn Princess arrives tomorrow morning.

                              Looks like Finnmarken will be leaving her wharf on 24.March to go OPL, but ETD Fremantle is still listed as 31. March.
