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.

Brgds.

Tradewinds is reporting today that Shell will be bunkering the two new LNG-fuelled car carriers that VW will be chartering from Siem Car Carriers. Apparently they will be delivered in 2019, carry 4,500 cars and will be fitted with a 3,000 CBM LNG tank. VW first announced this charter in 2016.

Now here's the thing. I can't find these ships anywhere. Are these the second pair from Uljanik? (yardnos. 524/525). Those are listed in IHS for 2018 delivery first of all (but delay is the order of the day by now), carry 7,000 cars and are not fitted with DF engines.

Can anyone point me to the right ships?

Many thanks!

Yvon my compliments. Again a hugely impressive effort. It is very clear from these pictures that containerships are the flavour of the year, largely due to the mass obsolescense of the "old" Panamaxes.

This was an amzing ship. She did well with 64 years of service and fondly remembered by Dutch naval enthousiasts. I hope she will be preserved. That would be a great excuse for a trip to wonderful Peru in the future!

another former P&O Nedlloyd ship gone and particularly another Dutch-flagged one. According to IHS (end August 2017) that would leave only five remaining Dutch-flagged Maersk container ships: MAERSK KALMAR, KAMPALA and KIMI and MAERSK PALERMO and PENANG. All were built in 1998 (apart from the KAMPALA, which is a 2001 build). Likely scrap candidates soon.

Regarding the Tide's, I hear that one British yard is doing well out of them with the lead vessel having extensive pipe and wiring work done at Falmouth even before doing a day's work. Most likely blowing the budget again and then late as well, isn't that typical of contracting in any field these days.

LOL why am I not surprised. Aren't these ships late as well? The copy for the Norwegians (MAUD) certainly is.

To date, the RN has always built the major surface combatants in the UK. Only the support ships have been built elsewhere (and then only with the most recent batch of four TIDE tankers if I'm not mistaken). Besides, building those tankers in Korea meant the RFA could get four of them instead of two or three of them when built in UK (although no UK yards tendered for the order).

I do support your general line of thinking though. Naval ships should be built in one's own country whenever possible.

That article is somewhat confusing. The correct story is as follows: Eight Type 26s have already been ordered, the new package is about five Type 31s to replace the other five Type 23s that hadn't been accounted for yet: http://navaltoday.com/2017/09/08/uk-mod-announces-plans-for-royal-navys-t31e-frigates/

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.

Contrary to my earlier report, the HERMOD is due to be loaded on the DOCKWISE VANGUARD in the next few days, in order to be shipped to the scrapyard in China. Boskalis press release here: https://boskalis.com/press/press-releases-and-company-news/detail/boskalis-acquires-usd-50-million-worth-of-marine-transport-contracts.html

Apparently, the extra jobs that Heerema was lining up for the HERMOD didn't come through (or were delayed, I don't know) while in the meantime, the HERMOD's certificates expired. She has already been stripped of a lot of equipment, and loading on the DOCKWISE VANGUARD will happen as soon as weather permits.

Another (former) VLCC has been sold for scrap, the FPSO OPPORTUNITY (IMO 7219909). She was built by Kockums of Sweden in 1972 as the CHEVRON LONDON. She was later shortened and further on she was converted to an FPSO. She has been in lay up for some years now. Sale to Indian breakers for USD320/ldt or about USD11.2 million as per latest GMS update.

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.
