Description:

In the years abt. 1976-78 I shot this picture in Bogen, the Northern lay up harbour in Holmestrand, Norway. Most probably these are the ships: Sevonia Team, Anglia Team, Britta, Scandia Team, Intisar, Modena and Northern Arrow waiting for new jobs.

Hi Pieter,
Just checked in "ANL - A Fleet History of the Australian National Line 1957-1999", published 2020, and found that two of their unsuccessful "P"-Class ore carriers were laid up and frozen -in at Holmestrand.
The "AUSTRALIAN PURPOSE", after completion by Gotaverken Oresundsvarvet AB was laid up from some time in 1977 until being commissioned in 2/1979.
The "AUSTRALIAN PROGRESS", after completion by Blohm & Voss A.G., was laid up from about January 1978 until being commissioned in 2/1979.
So, not the "AUSTRALIAN PIONEER".
There's a photo in the book showing "AUSTRALIAN PROGRESS" frozen in at Holmestrand between three of the grey hulled Libyan tankers.

A very interesting selection of Swedish shipbuilding industry pride vessels.

Remember that "Furu" was moored to the concrete-construction bottom left for many years

Yes, Tomas. I think the tug FURU was moored to the concrete construction down to the right abt 1988 ++. She was painted in light blue color, I believe.

A couple of corrections:
Should read "SEVONIA TEAM" (IMO: 7336410) and "ANGLIA TEAM" (IMO:7226873)
I can't find a"BRITTA" or a "MODENA" to match with any of these vessels.

Hi Peter, I think the last ship in the queue is the ANL bulker Australian Pioneer (built by Oresund) while the twin stacked (yellow and black) OBOs, are two of the three Diamantis Lemos built OBOs (Angelic Star, Harmony and Blessing) also from Oresund.
The three Libyan tankers (blue funnel) could be Elfwaihat, Elgurdabia and Elhani, which were all three laid up on delivery in 1976 and commissioned in 1981.
The stand alone tanker is a Gotaverken built 154000 DWT ship, and could be one of the Karagageorgis ships (logo missing on the funnel) or the Archontas, (again logo missing) delivered in 1976, also laid up and delivered in 1981.
