This morning (14th of march 2008) the Daewoo Frontier (ex Repubblica di Genova) has left the port of Antwerp.
The strong tug Salvigilant was infront of her and 3 URS tugs kept her secure at the stern.
She has been waiting to leave the port of Antwerp for a long time.
Finally she made it to the River Schelde and who knows if we ever get to see her again!!

Take a look here:

The Repubblica di Genova is re-named to Daewoo Frontier and is still waiting to leave the port of Antwerp.
The tug  Salvigilant is still moored infront of her.
No movements have been made for the last few weeks.

5  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Belgian Schelde Pilots on Strike on: August 27, 2007, 10:31:40 am
I have been shipspotting in Antwerp the last weekend.
Because of the strike there where hardly any ships around. Pilots work only for a few hours. At flushing there are an awfull lot of ships waiting (about 40) to get in to the ports of Gent and Antwerp.
Some ships try to go to Rotterdam. But most of them still wait untill they can go on.

The companies in Antwerp have a lot of trouble over this.
And for shipspotting it is a pitty as well. We had great weather this weekend, but no ships. So the next few days we have to wait and see how and when they are getting back to work again.
At this moment the stike is nog over yet!!!

I have no idea.
But i just looked on the shipplotter and i can't find her anymore, so there is a big chance she left Antwerp.

On her way to her new destination!

This afternoon the Superfast X is given the new name: Jean Nicoli.
She is still in the Antwerp dry docks.
Maybe after this renaming she will leave pretty soon.
