Cargo   18 comments

When offshore we need supplies, and lots of them, from spare parts to food, fuel and water.
All of this stuff is brought out by boat, during rig move operations we can’t get supply boats in because the rig may suddenly move if an anchor is lifted, or a AHV puts on a bit to much power, so we can get short of stuff, like ice cream, and that is not good. So as soon as the move is finished in they come, sometimes one on either side of the rig and both cranes working overtime, anything to get that ‘double chocolate ripple’ onboard.

Here is an small anchor handler being used as a supply boat, in the North Sea we use purpose built very large supply boats.

Zoom in a bit closer and you can see some of the gear that needs to be lifted off.
