    "Seven Borealis" arrived in Tromsø early friday morning.
    They landed 200 workers who had completed their mission aboard.
    After a few hours in Tromsø they set course for the Barents sea again.

      200! That's a lot of people. They must have been packed in pretty tightly.
      Barents sea - brrrr, chilly.

      The ship has cabin space for 399 people. There are 127 cabins in total divided into single or double cabins, or 4-man cabins.
      So the accommodation options would probably be good enough for the workers on board.

      I watched her "grow" at Sembawang Shipyard and probably posted some pictures of her there as well.
      Have a look at her transformation into to top modern CSV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_w86MHZ1qY

    all the vessels of Boskalis are renamed with boka in front of the name.
    the former ''go pegasus'' to her new name ''Boka Pegasus'' in the port of Rotterdam

      Originally ordered as the Mospower 3 at Batamec, but never delivered. Became Deepsea 3 for Otto Marine (seen here on CVF many timer under that name)
      Later Go Pegasus for Go Marine and eventually putt to work after sitting several years idle. Boskalis must have got this one cheap.

      The grey fleet is extending very fast.
      Al the companies they bought get the grey colors.
      Smit , Dockwise ,Taklift , Farmount for sail ,only Smit Salvage seems to be under there own name.
      And this week the sale of the harbour towage is finished. Bring them 99 millions of euro's , thinking that they also sold there 49% shares in saam smit towage that bring them 201 millions euro's ,then there stil remains some euro's for buying the " go pegasus".

    Great captures from Rotterdam, Thijs... thanks for sharing.

    You have a much better variety of ships than what I can see from my "office", and I appreciate you sharing these views with me (us).

          Do you know what she is up to in those waters? She has gone dark on AIS since a day after leaving Norfolk 02.Aug. and last seen in the North Sea heading in a NE'ly direction on 09. Oct. for undeclared destination with ETA 01. Nov.:

          Do you mind if I copy your pictures on an American maritime forum to see if anybody there know what she is up to?

          Maybe she has been in for crew change and getting new supplies on board.
          It's been a month since she last visited Tromsø.

            Hi Ombugge
            Don't know anything about what the ship is doing here in Tromsø.
            Just copy the picture to post it on other forums, so we might know what she is doing in these waters.

            "Hos Red Rock" was back at Breivika harbor the next day, but since she has not turned on AIS it is impossible to see where she has been.

            The ship had ordered pilot from Tromsø on saturday 26.10.19 at 12.00, but this has now been canceled.

              Thanks. I think you are as curious as me as to what this is all about.
              Could it have anything to do with the new radar in Vardø?

            "Hos Red Rock" left Tromsø this morning at 09:30 LT
            Without AIS signal it is impossible to know where she sails, but she sailed south Tromsø strait that's all i know.
            Let's see if she shows up on AIS at a later time.

            It is also possible that the vessel has unloaded equipment to be transported to the Mosaic expedition controlled by the German icebreaker "Polarstern"

            The Russian icebreaker "Akademik Fedorov" arrives in Tromsø tomorrow.
            They will probably pick up more equipment to be transported north to "Polarstern"

              You can see her from the comfort of your home. Did she leave with an empty deck?
              PS> No reaction on the American forum. Maybe they don't want to risk disclosing any secrets that could bring FBI on the door??

              Looks like they've unloaded some containers from the cargo deck, but there were still some containers left on the cargo deck when they left Tromsø yesterday morning.
              The purpose of the ship here in Tromsø remains unknown.
          Working...
