    Jacket installation in Danish waters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_0IaMvpvuM

    Noticed that the Riggers are all Ibans from Sarawak, East Malaysia??
    They are regarded as the best in the world for this kind of work. All major Offshore Construction Contractors are using Ibans where possible.
    They are hard working and doesn't complain for every little thing.

    A popular way of laying pipelines in very deep water is by Coiled or Spooled pipelaying from very large and sophisticated vessels.

    Here is one of the largest and most advanced yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIU_mWhRguA

    The process of preparing pipelines at the Spooling Base at Vigra, Norway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XneFt2rvfgE

    Spooling pipe onto the reel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Baj5o88L2A
    Not at Vigra.

    Another large pipelaying vessel, including a short cut of pipe being laid from the spool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CukfISn8uOM

    More tutorials.
    Pipelaying by the traditional S-lay method and all manual welding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02qzEHzR6wI
    The days when all Offshore Pipe welders came from Oklahoma is long gone.

    Deep water pipelaying by the J-lay method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Phqum0y1nhs
    This is the system on board Saipem 7000, with auto welding.

    Here a boring video showing the welding process, using all automated gas welding system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcRYWKLbknQ
    Also on the Saipem 7000. (Please ignore the stupid acting of the Iban riggers on break)

    Spool piece installation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z98oPpTiIu0
    It is very quick and easy in animation

    More Anchor handling.
    This time the modern way, using two cranes with manipulators running on the cargo rails: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIk6o...s_digest-vrecs
    Minimal man handling for minimal risk:

    Working on deck in rough weather can be dangerous: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PFfQ2VRNP4

    A good illustration of Anchor Handling operation in good weather.
    This is the famous, but now wrecked, AHT Typhoon handling anchors for McDermott's Crane barge "CB 30": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqrKZTQOkPQ

    Aside from a tribute to the Typhoon it is a good illustration of how anchor handling is done the traditional way, using pennants and suitcase buoys, not chaser.

    She sunk in Bonny River, Nigeria on 05. Nov. 2013. Here is a link to the Wrecksite page about the tug Gudri: http://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?209812

    Here is a typical example of Coonas* inginuity and a lesson on how NOT to do tandem towage: http://gcaptain.com/tandem-town-goes...Captain.com%29

    Tandem = two vessels in line, one by one.

    AHTS Capricorn (ex Schelde, ex King Supplier, ex Arvid Viking, ex Northern Comrade) hooking up towline to a casualty in less than ideal weather.

    Preparing the tow wire:


    Anchor and chain from the casualty pulled on deck. Making connection:


    Salvage crew returning from the casualty after the job on their side is done:

    Not for the fainthearted to do a basket transfer in these conditions.

    Tow progressing towards safe heaven:




    PS> Capricon was one of the last UT 704 Mk. III to be built. Launched as Balder Schelde in 1985 by J. Patje, Holland.

    PPS> Photos curtsy of the Master, AHTS Capricorn.

    Re: Towage and Marine Operations

    This thread has been neglected, by me and everybody else.
    I take this opportunity to bring it back to life by showing a large barge with a jacket on deck leaving from Lumut, West Malaysia last week.

    A familiar looking vessel coming into view behind the threes:


    Aha, it is the POSH Persistence:


    But she is moving slowly. What is she towing??
    A semi-submersible cum launch barge. The POSH Mogami:


    With a Steel Jacket on the launch beams:


    The local tug Gerak Tegas is escorting at the stern:


    I had nothing to do with this operation and don't know where they are heading.

    thus that mean that vrijhof is a brand/devolopper factory of anchers?
    and not a supplier of anchors.
    Vryhof is both developer, manufacturer and supplier of anchors, incl. special purpose anchors for the offshore oil and gas industry.
    They also develop and manufacture anchor handling equipment. They are world leader in their field.

    Here is a link to their web site and the "bible" of anchors, anchor handling and technology: http://www.vryhof.com/anchor_manual.pdf
