Hello boys
Most of the reefers come empty, we are in exports of the season of the fruit, have arrived in Valparaiso almost all ships from Europe with empty units.
The MSC SOFIA CELESTE has ETA estimated for Friday, February 10 to Valparaiso, if the weather conditions and the arrival time to port accompany me, I may take a couple of photos of this beautiful ship.
Greetings to all.
Juan Carlos..

Hello Brett

For info
For me it looks that the vessel is sailing for South America.
1. The reefers are stored well above 3nd row. means the crew is only able to work up to 3 layer for maintenance
2. the reefers on the aft are stored opposite, the reefer units are away from the lashing bridge which is used also for maintenance work
3. for this amount of reefers the vessel is high out of the water means most are empties
4. Of course we have a lot of extension cables aboard but all this reefers have their own cables which are max. 10 mtr long. A full reefer is always stored close to reefer sockets which been provided in designated holds with reefer sockets, and storage positions on deck also with applied reefer sockets at lashing bridges
best regards
Andreas (Capesize)
