    Russian seamanship at it's best: http://gcaptain.com/incredible-foota.../#.VkKgq_mheUk

    Advise: Take your seasickness tablet before watching.

    It stops short of success though.

    Another operation that may interest some. Skidding a jackup rig hull onto a barge and setting it on the bottom in a shallow river: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuW6FfKfJPA

    Similar operation, but this time in Vung Tau, Vietnam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuzHAdAd5jM
    The biggest difference is that the rig is floated off the barge, not placed on bottom and jacked up.

    Maybe not too many notice, but a major project is ongoing in the Norwegian Sea at the moment: http://gcaptain.com/mv-solitaire-get...bsea-pipeline/
    It should be noticeable at Westbase though??

    i had surched for it at the wijsmuller site,but did not find it for sure.
    the onlu tugs here where the tempest,husky and the salvageman,
    but nothing there about those 3 tugs,but mentoned are there smit tugs,
    also not good to see if the tempest had the fenders there onher bow.
    but i thought that statfjord c came out as best.

    I used to do this for a living.

    I believe this either Statfjord B (1981) or Statfjord C (1984) during tow from the building site in Stavanger to the deck mating site at Stord.

    The heaviest Condeep was the Gullfax C at 1.5 Mill. tonnes at towout, while Troll A was the tallest. It was placed in 303 m. water depth.
    I was only involved in moving the Gullfax C out of the building dock when it was a measly 220,000 tonnes: http://www.npd.no/en/Publications/Re...rwegian-shelf/

    passing the terminal this week,i noticed that the terminal was ''cloosed'' with a row of containers of 3 high.
    just a little part to see now, hangar-open-containers-open-carpark.
    something to hide???
