Yeah, remember that site too.

That's the site I was speaking of, the one Cornelia mentioned.
Maybe it's "homemade" and he or she hasn't had the time yet to keep up with Sietas developments...

Thanks alot, too - I have checked this site and yard types, and it just ends at types 170. Should be updated soon :-)
Pekka Laakso on May 19, 2008 21:34 (10 years ago)
I see, maybe the websites havenīt updated yet?
Jens Boldt on May 19, 2008 21:15 (10 years ago)
Thank you so much! :-)
I've googled for "Sietas type" but with the exception of one website (which doesn't list all types) there are practically no results.

Hi Jens,

I think so too.

About AILA & LINDA, they are of type 174a, and 174 should be the geared version (with cranes): ARNARFELL & HELGAFELL.

Thanks, Cornelia. She really is a weird looking vessel, but from this angle yeah impressive. :-)

Hi Pekka!
Superb shot.

In December I've taken a photo of another vehicle carrier called KASSEL (IMO. 9186950, built in 1999). Is my KASSEL the successor (in name) to this one?
And now for something completely different:
Do you happen to know which Sietas-type are AILA and LINDA? I've been trying to find out for a few days now, but I come to no conclusion! :-(

Best regards,
