1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / VIKING JUPITER London Departure 2/7/19 on: July 02, 2019, 12:49:30 pm
The new Viking Cruise Liner VIKING JUPITER left London early today as scheduled. Subsequently it anchored in the Thames Estuary and has now returned to London with 2 Svitzer tugs escorting it.
Does anyone know the reason for this unscheduled return ?

The PLUTO which was mentioned previously in this thread has been in Kaliningrad, Russia for the past few weeks following her final departure from Whitstable. After some attention in the docks there she has now emerged as the BALTICA HAV flying the Antigua flag. Her new call sign is V2QS6, IMO remains 8415665 but MMSI is now 304264000. Currently on passage to Sweden.
It would appear that her future is less gloomy than many would have thought.

Best wishes

Still on the Marine Traffic theme - does anyone know of a setting that will delete (or grey out) vessels from my display after a set time ? It is annoying to see a ship and then look at it's reported details and find that it was in that position many hours ago !.
I also run Shipplotter and you can delete ships after any interval you choose and thus get a current picture .
 (I did ask Marine Traffic but never had a reply )

Many thanks

Tim Farrow.

Hi,
   Not sure I'm very happy about comments ref cameras,etc and locals - you will find that situation anywhere !
   Please don't forget the views you get by parking alongside Kingsferry Lift Bridge onto Sheppey and watching traffic for Ridham Dock pass through it and under new Sheppey Crossing.
Have a good week on our Island!
Regards
Tim Farrow.

Both SVITZER MONARCH and SVITZER GANGES are in service today.
SVITZER KENT has departed for Felixstowe this p.m.
Only requires SVITZER STANFORD to go to Thames for moves to be complete !

Best wishes

Just looked again at my photo and name is also on after quarter where original registry was and so looks as if welded also.
Copy of photo attached if anyone is interested.

Names are only painted on the side of wheelhouse as is current trend for tugs. They look original and both vessels look very clean and tidy. TOS carried out delivery voyages.

When they arrived at Chatham they had registry port of Kingstown painted on them, but welded on letters for Rio de Janeiro  (now overpainted) were clearly visible below this confirming original Brazilian registry.

Rumour has it that they are new tugs for the Medway to replace tugs that are going:

Svitzer Warden has been transferred to Liverpool
Svitzer Kent will go to Felixstowe to replace Svitzer Stanford which is going to London.

As a result Medway fleet should comprise:

Svitzer Victory
Svitzer Intrepid
Svitzer Harty
Svitzer Monarch ( renamed Svitzer Helena)
Svitzer Ganges  ( renamed Svitzer Celia)

All happening in the next week or so.

Thank you for the info - I will look out for her.

I've just noticed on the PLA ( Port of London) Website a Notice to Mariners ( M18 of 2015) that states that on May 12-13 and Aug 11-12 a vessel over 210M will berth on the Thames above Margaretness (i.e. in Greenwich/Blackwall area). My list of Cruise Line visits does not match theses dates so think it might be Naval. Does anyone have any ideas as to which vessel that might be referring.
