While the crane did not fall on the AEOLUS herself, it did fall on some sections which were being prepared to be added to the AEOLUS during her conversion.

Althought the ship has a "charred" look, the bridge appears to be mostly undamaged: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt6oXaCtsaQ

I guess the poor souls on board died from the smoke (but we don't know anything for sure right now of course).

Following an interesting question raised by fellow spotter MattyBoy, I am now wondering: are jack-up rigs also beached for scrapping or are they landed at the scrapyard in another matter, e.g.: moved from a pontoon onto dry land or simply jacked up in front of the quayside for example?

So far, all the beached rigs I have found are semisubs or drillships...

thank you Carlos, I thought the dredger ARENOSA had been scrapped, but I was not sure, so thanks for confirming that.

The Finnish day cruise ship BLUEWHITE EAGLE (originally FRISIA III, 710GT, 1960, IMO 5121768) has just been scrapped at the Turku Repair yard in Naantali as a pilot project between the yard and the company Meriaura. The yard bought her for just EUR 2,000 and scrapping was completed in 8-9 days. This was reported by Tradewinds on 2 November 2017.

Here is at least one former Russian fish carrier which seems to be well taken care of: https://www.marinelink.com/news/antarctic-delivers430912

The two krill harvesting ships mentioned are:

the huge ANTARCTIC SEA (ex-THORSHOVDI and originally the Dutch coaster VLIEBORG (IMO 9160358, built 1999)
the elderly trawler SAGA SEA (IMO 7390416, built 1974)

Tradewinds is reporting that these two ships were ordered at Xiamen Shipbuilding in May 2017.

No it doesn't. I went through the whole list in IHS and there is really no alternative for the second pair from Uljanik (yardnos 524/525), which are apparently now coming in 2019. So it must them I guess.

I still see plenty of variation and even if I'm not that old myself (40), I like to see both new AND old ships, as I still recall seeing the ships built in the 50s-70s myself when they were active. Having said that, the first category that I look at on the site is always "Ships under construction", but that I also from a professional point of view.
