Apparently she has been in semi-layup status as a training ship at Portsmouth, without a full crew (lack of manpower?).  So towage is relocating to Devonport would seem sensible.

Interesting, Phil.  Do you have dates for leaving Salamina and her Sicilian U-turn?  Looks as if the Palermo "call" may have been an eastbound "drive-by" on 2-3/11.  For 2018 she seems to have been regularly towing new hulls from Galati to Norway.  In summary, for 2018:

27/2 sailed Salamis Shipyard to Piraeus anchorage
6/4 sailed Piraeus anchorage, 10/4 passed Malta westbound
2/5 arrived Aliaga Anchorage [assume with fire-damaged bulker CHESHIRE from Motril], then to Piraeus Anch
18/5 sailed Piraeus, 23/5 arr Galati
25/5 sailed Galati, 12/6 passed Dover NE for Aukra,  17/6 arr Naerbovagen, Norway [presumably a hull]
30/6 sailed Malta Anch westbound, 21/7 arr Brevik [another hull, perhaps transferred at Malta?]
9-15/8 at Salamis Shipyard, 20/8 arr Galati
26/8 sailed Galati, 2/9 passed Malta westbound, 14/9 passed Dover NE for Brevik [presumably another hull]
20/9 passed Dover SW for Braila, 27/9 called Ceuta, 8/10 arr Galati
10/10 sailed Galati, 22/10 passed Malta westbound, [destination?]
2/11 passing Palermo Anch [AISlive];3/11 sailed Palermo [Marinetraffic]
6/11-1/12 in Piraeus Anchorage [and at Salamina Shipyard?]
4/12 passed Malta westbound; 9/12 arr Nemrut Bay Anch; 12/12 beached Aliaga [looks like the U-turn was 4-5/12?]

PS @Robbie.  Yes of course December list there all along - I got confused by the November copy/repeat

Was there a December list, Robbie?

For starters, DIAVLOS PRIDE ~(IMO 7914470) anchor handling tug beached Aliaga 12/12/2018

Believed that she arrived Nemrut Bay 9/12 with another scrap vessel in tow, from Palermo.
Any info on that?

@Paul.  Not sure that I grasp your question - but there are over 270 bitumen/asphalt tankers in service at present, with sizes up to 46,000dwt.

Found light displacement figures for RANIYA/KAIKURA (IMO 7374436) = 1735 LDT
Nothing found for FLIPPER (IMO 6908668)

We would certainly be interested in new photographs of these or any other "oldies" in Nigeria.

Looks as if she was going to Cammell Laird anyway, but was aground for just over an hour just north of the basin (missed approach?).  SMIT SANDON/BARBADOS/WATERLOO deployed

She has been inspected and a fuel-tank leak found, though there are no reports of pollution [perhaps the leak is into another internal space? Or just too small and slow to show up if it is diesel, for example].  But she is now detained under port state control until it is fixed and the ship has been brought in to Falmouth harbour this morning under tow and is now anchoring in Carrick Roads.

Is this the same photo: https://www.itv.com/news/2018-12-21/police-essex-mirgrants-ships/

If so, it is by member "har", though credited to Grimaldi Lines:

While expanding the menu of ports etc available has long been on the "to do" list, there has been no positive response to that from IT for many years.

So whenever you get a "no ports found!" response to typing the place in, all we can do is to include the location in the Photo Description.

Failure of a lashing, or failure to lash?
Heavy weather was not unexpected.

Now refloated and more-or-less back where she started.

Cash deposit for the salvors needed.
She has only just ended an extended stay at Terneuzen from 15 May to 7 Dec.  Firstly with financial problems, presumably over Murmansk Shipping Co's financial difficulties

and then a 71-day detention after port state control inspection.  Supposed to be heading for Ceuta
