1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: ships sold for scrap on: Yesterday at 09:57:52 am
Ah, ex-MUREX, a sister of the DARYAKARAN (ex-MYRINA), both part of Shell's first series of double hulled VLCCs in the mid-90s. I believe there were four in total. The other two were already scrapped in the previous tanker dip in 2013.

Not a merchant ship, but still interesting, I think: https://www.recycling-magazine.com/2017/08/17/recycling-uss-thomas-s-gates-begins/

I understand Heerema's crane vessel HERMOD will go to Turkish breakers in about 18 months time, after she's finished all the projects that are still lined up for her.

FPSO MARLIM SUL (IMO 7360148) to be sold for scrap: http://www.offshoreenergytoday.com/sbm-offshore-sells-marlim-sul-fpso-for-scrap/

She was built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique in 1977 as the ALEXANDER S. ONASSIS and later sailed for Shell as their LYRIA.

And another one for the record: the ferry CARIBBEAN FANTASY that was sold for scrap had a different IMO number and year of build: it is IMO 8814263 and was built in 1989, not 1970.

Chinese navy group entering Baltic for excercises with the Russian navy. Includes a new Type 052D destroyer. I think those haven't been to the West yet (but I could be wrong):

The Russians are bringing out the PETR VELIKIY (world's greatest warship IMHO), and others.

Picture of the beaching now on the Ship Breaking Facebook page. Sure looks like the ENSCO I.

this week's GMS report notes the arrival of a "drill ship" called CRYSTAL ORCA at Chittagong on July 11th. I can not find such a ship. What I can find is an elderly semisub called ORCA (8755015) which has been in layup for over a year. Maybe that's her?

Including the conversion of the Arctic shuttle tanker TEMPERA into an FPSO. Earlier, some odd reports had surfaced suggesting that this ship was going for scrap. This seemed highly unlikely to me, as she is a very high spec ship of only 15 years old, not just some run-of-the-mill tankers. This latest news makes much more sense:

Must be costing them a fortune. I guess they are losing a lot of business this way.
