Thanks Rick, for explaining. |
Hi Trygve, I guess the green tarpaulins are covering various equipment for ship to ship bunker transfers. Maybe hoses on reels, oil spill response equipment or rubber fenders.
I can't say for sure, but it's most likely.
Sometimes the trawlers are bunkered at sea by trailing a floating hose from the ship's stern to the trawler (when it is too rough to go alongside each other).
If you look very closely at full screen, you can see an oil cargo valve manifold between the three men on the starboard side of the poop, & the man 'hiding' in the doorway. This manifold faces aft and could be used for the ship to ship in-line bunkering.
Time was when all product tankers had an aft facing loading/discharge line on the poop (stern) and could be used for Mediterranean moors (i.e. stern-to the berth) and at some remoter ports, such as in the pacific islands. I worked on several ships thus.
Hi Husni, vessel was sailing and had a tug on the bow to help her turn out of the berth. The tug was nearly as big as the tanker!

There is always a pilot on board for each & every port movement.
Hi Jens, thanks for the comment. There are a few 'Hai Soons' operating in the area, along with mainland Chinese, Russian & South Korean bunkering tankers. Always something different (sometimes wildly different) in the Port!
They mseem permanent - on all the pics back to 2011 |
Interesting picture. But I wonder what is the function of the green parpaulin arrangements very visible ? Permanent or temp.? |
Hi Rick, a very nice catch. And thanks for the explanation. While correcting a ship's name and adding an IMO number ;-) on two other photos I was wondering what a Singapore-flagged bunker vessel was doing in Las Palmas...
no tug for berthing?how about Pilot? tks n rgds |
Hi Rick. Nice and interesting shot. Looks like new after drydocking. Nice colors and really good quality.
Congratulations my friend.
