No idea David. They cut the whole superstructure and funnel away before moving her to Kootstertille, I think. The bridge does look newer than the rest of the ship.
Pieter: any other parts of the ship lying about in Groningne?

Perhaps it is going to be re-used?
If it had to be removed for navigational reasons but also scrapped, I would expect to have been just placed on the deck.

Hi Pieter, they had to cut off the bridge before they could take the rest of the ship to the scrapyard at Kootstertille in Friesland.
