An OSV, a dredger and a landing craft have been recently added to the Dutch vessel delivery firm Redwise’s track record of completed ocean passages.
The newly built landing craft “ESNAAD 1010” of 1.334 gt and installed propulsion power of 1696 BHP was successfully delivered on her maiden passage during the monsoon season from the Sealink Yard at Miri (Malaysia) to Abu Dhabi (UAE).
The newly built Offshore Support Vessel “OCEAN STAR”, departed from the yard at Guangzhou (China) on May 15th heading for her new homeport Dos Bocas (Mexico). The route took vessel via great circle route across the Pacific Ocean to Panama Canal. “OCEAN STAR” safely arrived in Mexico (Caribbean side) on July 20th after a maiden voyage covering 10.676 nautical miles.
The well maintained and sturdy 1975 built dredger “SAND WEAVER” recently departed from the UK port of Swansea after several days of vessel & voyage preparations, involving flag change and associated surveys etc. Bearing in mind vessel’s destination and chosen routing, the usual hardening and security arrangements were carried out (partly after clearing the Suez canal), resulting in a safe & secure passage through the Gulf of Aden, Arabian Gulf and associated part of Indian Ocean. After 31 days of sailing time, the SAND WEAVER was safely handed over to principals at the port of Bahrain.
