Skandi Africa inbound to Offshore Technology Park with some interesting ‘kit’.
Seajacks Zaratan entering 1 hour earlier than predicted, in misty conditions, so I missed it. Thanks to Kevin Blair for this shot from Customs House, South Shields.
Magellan cruise ship at Northumbrian Quay. Seven Pelican and Magellan (my photos this time), offshore service vessels.
The hopper/suction-dredger arrived overnight to join Tiger and Fernao de Magalhaes to increase the depth of the river by the Riverside Quay.

The bulk carrier Stones (pronounced Stoness) unloading stone from Norway, via the gantry conveyor on the left, in the continuing quest to seal the entrance to the former Tyne Dock. Her sister ship Bulknes (I imagine Bulkness) has already started the process and is due next week with a further load.
You don’t realise what a sunny place North Shields is until you take photos of ships.
