I don't think Diavlos Pride towed anything into Aliaga. It looks like she headed west from off Salamina for 'Open sea' before turning east off Sicily when, presumably, the order came in to head for Aliaga. She did not enter Palermo.

Allan,

Only LNG carriers can be configured as FSRUs, as their purpose is to regasify and deliver natural gas. LPG carriers are different animals entirely. Modern FSRUs are designed as dual purpose transportation and regasification vessels which can oeprate as offshore installations or as bog-standard LNG carriers carrying LNG from A to B. Some older vessels have been converted but because they are tied to long-term FSRU projects, the only thing preventing them from returning to regular LNG transportation when projects are over is the cost of re-activation versus age.

Gaz Supplier (8818219) is not sold for scrap, despite market reports to the contrary.

I'm surprised that members are still concerned by the 'not secure' messages. I thought Cedric had explained it very well, with reassurances:

Hi all,

As mentioned here a few pages back, the "not secure" banners in your browser only mean that this website is not using the https protocol. The technical team is working on this, but since it is a pretty big operation this may take some time. The banner "not secure" is therefor not really a problem or safety problem with the website as such, only that traffic between your computer and the shipspotting.com server is not encrypted. This is not a major issue since no financial or confidential information is exchanged here.

I hope this makes things clearer for everyone.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of the elderly Varun LPG tanker MAHARSHI DATTATREYA (1983, IMO 8128975)? Appears to be still in operation, but no update on AIS since 28/10/'17.

MAHARSHI DATTATREYA is lying abandoned off Dubai in poor condition after the failure of owner Varun Shipping. She was expected to be an auction candidate earlier this year but nothing happened. it's believed that there are numerous legal hurdles to overcome before she can be sold.

The vessel has a garage area at the aft end, above the engine room for the carriage of road tankers which can be driven on and off via the ramp. The vessel operates to Greek islands where infrastructure is such that this approach is worthwhile. A small number of other Greek coastal tankers are similarly configured.

I hope this helps.

Hi Peter,

My company was involved in the sale of this ship, so Iím pretty confident that she is not going for scrap.She has been laid up for some time with expired certificates and that is the reason she cannot sail under her own power.

Hi Peter,

Are you sure she's going for scrap? She was sold at auction on 19/10/2018 to Micoperi SRL for further trading.

Ben Woollacott has been berthed at Kiel since Monday afternoon, with no further destination showing. I am sceptical that the new ferries have the necessary certificates and crew accommodation to cross the North Sea under their own power. However - I could still be proved wrong.

I must have known something, Vlad, as I wasn't too far wrong :-)

My shipspotting is largely confined to cruises these days. Most of my time I sit here in an office of a large shipping services company, researching and compiling maritime data, some of which (in an indirect way) is provided by class surveyors!

Vlad,

Many thanks for your wonderful photos from Japan. I had always assumed that your shipspotting was a by-product of business trips made to Japan and Korea where you are perhaps a class surveyor or newbuilding supervisor. Seems I am wrong on that score!

Anyway, as well as being good photos, they are tremendously informative and help no end in my very real business of tying up ship names to hull numbers and IMO numbers. Keep up the fanstastic work!

I cannot open full screen images in either Chrome or IE, and I am logged in. Strange.
