I wrote OBO, but see now that this is the Photo Category. |
and for the record they are/were ore/oil carriers and not OBO's. |
"Is it usual to have such cranes on OBOs"
No, but Nobu Su thought it would be a good idea. It wasn't and the ships were overpriced white elephants. Now under new ownership, these ships will be converted to straight VLCCs - with no cranes.
Is it usual to have such cranes on OBOs?? |
The IMO number of the H Wale is:9470040
It is quite amazing how quickly Hyundai has produced this series of ships, starting with A Whale in early 2010 and running through B, C, D, E, F, G and now H Whale. |
That was the A WHALE, the first ship of the series. |

Isn't this the vessel with which that shipowner was going to sweep-up all the oil spilt in the Gulf of Mexico recently? |
