    Nice to have another "Singaporean" here, and one involved in the Offshore industry some more.
    Hope you will be a regular contributor here on whatever thread that take your fancy, or maybe starting new once to suite your interests.
    We are lacking a thread called "This is China", maybe you could fill that gap?

    I believe I have posted pictures of Britoil boats here at some time, but can't recall where and when.

    The Britoil 80 is new to me, but I think she is one of the first to be designed in-house and built at the Britoil Yard in Batam?

    Looks like a very compact vessel, with good equipment, long range and good sea keeping capabilities.
    wahoooo! "This is China" is really a big thread for me ! since China has so long history and so many things happened to her . i need time to collect stuff before i make this decition.

    Britoil 80 is indeed the second series of AHT ship we design by ourseves and build in Batam . the third series of Britoil 120,which is more sophisticate-with DPS2, is nearly done.



    the water spurted around wheelhouse and mast is to protect the vessel from fire burning

            When you look at the starboard funnel of the tug "Diheciocho"....., and compare the first picture to the last...., is that an optical illution of some sort, or what....?

            Anyway, Kristiansund got a brand new tug yesterday evening when "Waterchief" arrived from a tour from the turkish shipyard.

            I was on a party last night celebrating a collegues birthday, and therefore I haven't been outside my house yet today to take my own pictures.

            If you want to take a look, I'll post the link to that norwegian forum:

                          first of all.i don´t like the looks of that tug ,just a STUPID and ugly tug.

                          i don´t think that they place new tyres on the side, i also think that se wil get any troubble with aquaplanning eather.
                          they place old tyres as a sheep replacement for the cussins on the side
                          (i think) old tyres special from industrial vehicle are firm and thick,so they can have a hard kiss from another vessel without damage

                              The new tug in Kristiansund Taubåtservice ASs fleet, "Waterchief".
                              This vessel sailed from the yard in Turkey and arrived in Kristiansund around a week ago.


                              The companys old and smaller "Waterchief" capsized and sank rapidly when handling a huge vessel in Sunndalsøra in 1999. Crew survived, luckily...
