Shipping News and information / Re: Reefer/palletised ship
« on: January 27, 2024, 03:48:24 PM »
Most likely it is NOR FREEZE I under a later name. Built 1979 at Harstad, Northern Norway, with IMO 7724186. Sold already 1981. Later names: SHEREEN - CHION MED - FRESH CARRIER - AZUR TRADER - RADE - SEAVIC REEFER - B/U 2018.
She also had a sistervesel; the NOR FREEZE II, but she only had one single name after her sale. The one on the enclosed photo has 2 names.

MattB, if you search for IMO 5354896, you will find several photos of a wreck at Arrecife.It is the TELAMON.

Site related news, functions and modules / Too little information

Something that has been annoying me for years, is that information about the ships is very small. When you enter (push) a photo, you would like to see something else than "entering Rotterdam" or "arriving Sevilla" or "leaving Genoa". To add a photo on this site, you need a lot of information. Seems like someone mean it take too long time to add decent vesselhistory. If they have IMO, they also have ship's history. Why not add some of it, then we don't have to search forward and back to find actual ships history. It is NOT enough with IMO. Hope someone understand what I mean.

Help and Advice / Re: Listing sisterships built for any given ship

I noticed that you also check shipyard-lists. That does not always help, as sisterships sometimes are built at different yards, even in different countries

Help and Advice / Re: RITSKE - a cement carrier?

2 Norwegian vessels, NORBAR and COMABAR are also equipped with tanks in the holds. They have tanks for liquid and dry-powder. The hatch-covers are permanently closed, haven't been opened for years. All loading and discharging are carried out through manifolds on the side of hatches. Like RITSKE they are sailing between oilbases, mainly in Norway, but sometimes also Scotland and Denmark. It is not cement they are carrying as dry-powder, but baryte, which are used on the oilfields.

All Hurtigruten-vessels also have Webcam onboard

Roar, maybe it is not so good to send us to a site where we need registration and passwords. I can't get into this one without registrate; which I won't

Shipping News and information / Re: Ship's napes in ALL CAPS

I don't agree with you, Polsteam. I mean ship's names should always be in Capital Letters. This way it is easier to find specific vessels, eg. if you are reading an article in a shipping magazine (and also on Internet). Lets for example take a look at information in Marine News. If ships names was not in capital letters, it will be much more work to find what vessel, and also much easier to miss something. And sales/causalty/demolition would be much more difficult to follow if ship's names was not in capital letters.
Sometimes you may have to read almost a whole page to find out which vessels an article is about, with capital letters is is much easier to get a quick overview.
So my opinion is that ships names should be in Capital Letters, like Lloyd Register and other printed registers always have done. No need to change something that has been working good for decades.

Hi Derek,
here is one site; in Norwegian only, where you should find all present fishingvessels:

And another one, which shows all Norwegian vessels including fishing-vessels:


No problems; just triple the price of petroleum (or gas as you may call it) in the US / Canada. Too bad the rest of the World have to subside the US driving-habits. Let them taste European prices....

Shipping News and information / Gibbs & Zoon, Dordrecht
« on: June 24, 2011, 10:29:56 PM »
As I know there is several shipspotters from The Netherlands here, I have submitted a photo of a really oldtimer from a Dutch yard.
The live-fish carrier LYDIA was built at a shipyard called Gibbs & Zoon at Dordrecht in 1896, which mean that she is 115 years old.
Well, she was ofcourse not built as a live-fish carrier, she have had several rebuildings, but I find it very impresive that she is still sailing, and also that she is in such a good shape,with all certificates up to date.
Just search for LYDIA, or go into the live-fish carrier section. (Don't know how to make a link)

This has, as far as I remember, also been discussed before. I was sailing for some years on Mowinckels Gearbulk-vessels, and on all papers, drawings etc. which we had, they were referred to as bulk-carriers. (Open-hatch bulk-carriers). On one of them we were engaged in coal-transport between Baltimore and Sines,Portugal. With almost 40000 tons of coal inside holds I will not call them General Cargo.
It seems like it is in later years, that they has changed from bulkers to General Cargo. I also have some copies of Clarkson Bulk Carrier registers, they are listed there, and I can't understand if they should list General Cargo-vessels in there

If not tsunami, then an earthquake at sea may be dangerous to ships. The Norwegian tanker IDA KNUTSEN (built 1958) was close to an earthquake-center as she was passing off the Portugese coast in february 1969. Even if it was very deep water there, she got so big structural damages to hull that she was condemned.
However, a Greek company bought the ship and carried out large repairs to her, and after that she sailed for 10 more years before being sold to shipbreakers.
