    As said earlier, Barrow Island is a "Zero Discharge" Zone for any affluence. Maybe it has something to do with that? Or somebody has spent a lot of monies to drain a few liters of water per hour.
    I notice the hose has been dropped down already, so maybe the last is true.
    It is the airco. And the pipe is the outlet.

      Wow, they must be cooling some large spaces in the ship.

      There must be lots of additional pipework and trunking inside that we haven't seen yet.

      I guess that was a major part of the work at Olen.

        Maybe the entire Cargo Deck is now Air-conditioned?
        I think it has been mentioned somewhere that there would be offices arranged there.

        Still at the same berth. ETD now given as 10/04/2010.

          Yes, I do recall some talk that the cargo deck had been turned into laundries and offices. Hence the installation of a large AC plant, which the ship had not originally been designed with.

            At last there is some activity:


            The famous hose is up again. Is she getting ready to go tomorrow?:


            You can even see them working on it:


            No, ETD is now given as 1600 hrs. 15.04.2010.

            Can hardly remember when she arrived in Fremantle, was it sometime early March, I wonder???

              Comment

                ETD is now given as tomorrow 17.04.2010 at 1800 hrs. Maybe right this time??

                Does anybody know which supply vessel Hurtigruten has/is going to take on charter for this assignment???

                    Cool , or should I say HOT. You will be well into the tropics at Barrow Island.

                      Finnmarken is now in the bay nearby Exmouth.

                        Thank you so much for the update. Hope the weather at your end is not too hot, though I remember from my own visit to a place called Broome, that the area is generally sizzling hot....

                          I bet that sounds familiar to Steve B.

                          Exmouth is about 22ºS so you are in the tropics already. Just another 1º north and about the same east to Barrow Island.

                          Looking across the rest of the page in my Atlas, I'm amazed at how much of Australia is even further north. Cape York (at the tip of that pointy bit that sticks up towards New Guinea) is about 11ºS!!

                            That amazed me too, during some voyages around Australia (by sea naturally).

                            That is huge continent! Australia is a very large landmass... and some parts are almost "un-inhabited". I really would like to add a self drive across Australia to my already too long list of vacations I want to do.

                              Finnmarken is showing on AIS again this evening. She's moved to somewhere named Onslow (-20.41026˚ / 115.2841˚), which appears to be on the Australian mainland almost due south of Barrow Island.

                              She seems to be inching her way into position.
