Test didn't go well then.

Looks like the boom actually went backwards over the cabin when the rope snapped,

Oh my! Whilst the craftsmanship may be superb, it's a tad...gauche.

Something doesnt make much sense there. All the company literature says the crane was designed to lift 5000t, and yet the news article says it was conducting a 5500t lift test. I can only assume they deliberately overloaded it to get it signed off. Will delay the Moray firth wind farm because that wont in service for a few months!

All of this.
Usual form, 10% overload. My money is QA issues on the bull horn castings. This is a pretty big hook cast for Liebherr.

Moray East definitely now scratching its head - and the ramifications across the sector of offshore wind as One of the new big Three vessels is N/A for the near future.


interesting how the Owners are still 'Cosco' not Deme.

Scuttling of the Very Large Ore Carrier 'VLOC Stellar Banner'...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=11&amp...

Vessel was run aground to prevent sinking after being damaged leaving Brazil carrying 270,000 tonnes of iron ore bound for China. Salvage ops removed some of the cargo but the ship, although refloated, was declared unseaworthy and scuttled in deep water.

Ex-Pullmantur Cruises Monarch being run aground in Aliaga, Turkey:

https://youtu.be/yPpY9EMSWeM

Her sister ship Sovereign joined her the day after:

|https://thumbsnap.com/givfCQSB[/url]

She was launched in 1991 as Monarch of the Seas for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, then transferred to Pullmantur Cruises, a subsidiary of RCCL, in 2013 and renamed Monarch. Pullmantur filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, the ships briefly went back to RCCL ownership before being sold for scrap.

She's not the newest cruise ship to fall victim to the COVID crisis; Carnival are disposing of a couple of ships built in 1996, among others.

See range to feel sad to see a (on the surface) such a useable vessel go to scrap. Although time flies and she’s had a good innings

Mad to think a 1991 ship is nearly 30yo, however still seems new for a ship, even a cruise ship, but I guess demand has slumped and may take a long time to come back. Storage costs money?

Crazy footage from today Alan Thomson boat. Would not like to be solo at that speed and size of waves let alone sleeping.
