Ships like the RUHR N do not run to a schedule. It's likely that her departure time will be confirmed only a few hours before she actually leaves and that probably explains why you receive no information. Therefore, if you are coming all the way from Hamburg to Rotterdam, you might be disappointed. Good luck anyway.

I wish I could come see her too, I love that ship but unfortunately I'm too far away, if you do manage to catch her, please take many pictures since it's a shame there are so few of her on the net.

Good luck.

Hi Frans,

Thanks a lot for this Information. Is it possible, that you keep me informed if there are any changes or delays? I think at 05:00 hrs in the Morning it is possible to see her outbound  Grin. If there is a little hope to catch her, I will try it.

Thanks and best regards from Hamburg

Sorry wasn't on line.

In the meantime the vessel shifted to dolphins 84 in the calandkanaal. Futher inside.

I have no idea when she will be going out now.

Hi Frans,

Thanks for your help. My latest Information is, that she will leave on May 29.
Is it possible for you, to have a closer look on her departure time? It is not so easy to get some accurate informations from here (Hamburg).


Thanks again and Best regards

Jan

Hi Jan,

Here is the phone nr. of Port Control Rotterdam: 00 31 10 2522400.
They are well aware of all vessel's movements but officially not allowed to discuss this with shipping enthousiasts. So it'll depend on your diplomacy as well as the  mood of the guy answering the phone whether you'll get the information you need.

Good luck and tschuess !
Robert

Good Luck

Hi Jan,

thanks for your help. I wrote an e-mail to the Hamburg Office of NEU, but as expected I get no response from them. But I will try it on Friday with a direct call :-)

best regards,

The vessel is berthed at the beginning of the Rozenburg "Landtong", easily accesible by car.
You can even see her after a brisk walk arriving by train to Maassluis, and taking the Rozenburg ferry. You can approach her upto 50 mtrs. The view is unobstructed. I made pictures of the "Berge Fjord" there a couple of days ago.

Good luck !

During the night the vessel shifted and now the Ruhr N is berthed at the EECV terminal,  discharging a balance of 6000 mt. ETD tomorrow noon.
According to the agents the orders are to proceed to Brazil to load for China. It may be possible she'll proceed to Chittagong from there, but by no means sure. Let's see. Meanwhile if you'd like to take pictures here you should rush ....

Brgds,
Rob.

Hi Robert,

thanks for this important information. But as expected, for me it is not possible to say good bye to my favorite ship tomorrow… So if you or some other ship enthusiasts are there, say her “BYE BYE” from my side  Cry.
I hope that Fred Vloo is around there with his video camera to make a good film of her leaving the europoort for the last time.

Best regards

Jan
