Ex: RFA Gold Rover is being moved to Fountain Lake Jetty in Portsmouth today, is she going for scrap?
Any connection with the Cypriot tug Artemis with ETA Portsmouth later today?

ARTEMIS (IMO 8321591) a bit behind her ETA - just entering English Channel north of Brittany.  But she appears to be towing fleet-mate cable-laying barge ATALANTI (IMO 8661616), which is showing a more realistic ETA 19 Jul 2018 12:00.  They have both come from Eleusis.  But why Portsmouth?

Maybe ARTEMIS/ATALANTI have something to do with the IFA 2 Project connecting electricity from France to Great Britain as there is presently activity in the area involving the ships CHARTWELL, H M DENHAM and STOUR.  (http://ifa2interconnector.com/the-project/)

There is a tug AMBER II (IMO 9425423) which has just recently left Aliaga bound for Portsmouth forecasted to arrive 6 August, so maybe this could be something to do with Gold Rover's move to Fountain Lake Jetty, unless someone knows anything more!!

Well spotted, if I had zoomed in I would have seen the Atalanti as well  Smiley
Amber II sounds promising

AMBER II is towing Wightlink's new ferry VICTORIA OF WIGHT from Cemre Shipyard, Turkey to Portsmouth.

Thanks Phil regarding the new IOW ferry I wondered when that was going to arrive so something to look forward to.  So have to wait and see what happens with GOLD ROVER now as when they berth them at FLJ after being laid up at Fareham Creek they usually are waiting to be towed out.
