I had a few e-mails about yesterdays post so here is a quick follow up.

This is the vessel that we used to installed the turbine on the sea bed, its 250 ton crane had no problem lifting the turbine into place, with 3 bow thrusters and 4 stern thrusters it can hold us in position using a DP system with ease and its main engine has a bollard pull of 350 tons (anything less than 350 tons and it would just pull it along the ground).

In the sliding door you can see on the starboard side is a in-built Triton XLX work class ROV and a second one on deck. Built to meet future environmental standards, the vessel is fuel efficient and clean class, thus having the capability to work in most of the world’s offshore oil & gas precincts.

  1. What an exciting boat to be on, is it nice inside?

  2. an impressive, cute boat 🙂 Must be thrilling to work on it.

  3. Impressive, how many cabins does it have?

    • There are 55 cabins onboard and can accommodate 90 people but there is not normally that many so we have a cabin to ourselves. I’ve been on a boat the same size before and only 16 of us onboard…nice.

  4. Very cool shot.

  5. Another great capture! I love the color in the sky with the ship.

  6. Great shot, Lovely boat, great post
