I must admit i was pretty surprised by the amounts of hits and comments on this shot of actuaria and this one of the MSC Poland. So what do i have to do? Travel to larvik and shoot this one from the same angle. So here she is, and a hello to COKL, the Frisian trader....

Do you know if she had enginetrouble, or was she just beeing assisted?

Thats true. Big cranes though, this one has a safe working load of 140 tons, i think. And they make such cozy sound.

I have also seen that even with the big equipment in Hamburg they do not always do a hit at the first try, and sometimes they have to try a few times. So it is good that they are so high up and behind glass so we don't have to hear the swearing :-)

Yeah, the big grey one is damaged somehow, so the big orange one is used. Its very very slow. You actually could hear the craneoperator curse, hehe!

It is the same type of crane they used at Fredrikstad and I am not sure, I think Halden too !! Takes veeery long and nobody makes a hurry and it seemed they work if they like, and not if they do not like, and long time in port for the ship :-)

Thanx both of you, well yes, the craneoperator missed countless times, ecpecially when there was two 20-feet containers at once. But who the hell am i to make fuzz. No way that i could have done it, hehe!

I would say it takes ages to unload ship with that kind of crain. I mean it is slow and it take so much time.

Nice photo,

Oh, that's a really great shot !! Good angle, the ship almost looks massive in that view... while here it was simply under tow 8-)
