It could have been towing a barge , they bring smaller pre fabricated sections from Gdnask on barges and unload them trough the building hall with the gantry cranes . The doors were open earlier today with the caisson removed to allow water in , the gantry cranes can extend a few metres out of the hall to lift off the sections . They are most likely sections for the ship that will be built next in the hall .They are not the superstructure sections for the Brittany Ferries new ship , they will be delivered after the hull is launched .
OK thanks

A Kiel canal tug Falckenstein arrived in Flensburg earlier today her ais has her scheduled back at Kiel on Sunday. She is currently standing off the stern of the WB Yeats.

Does this mean that she will be leaving for Dublin this weekend or does she have to have any other work done?

I find it hard to believe that the scrubbers have not yet been installed , if not, were are they to be installed ? , around the funnel like on the Pont Aven . I dought it .

Space will have been allowed for inside the funnel given she was designed with scrubber installation in mind unlike older vessels such as PA.  Thereís a precedent actually - ALF POLLAK had her scrubbers fitted after her trials (also off Bornholm and the Danish coast) at Odense.

It was not touched up before the sea trials
Technically not true.  Someone obviously had the paint out at some stage in the past couple of weeks else the area around the bow doors (and others) would still have primer on them!!

Iím told there is still some commissioning work to do.  Perhaps we might see her in Dublin before the end of the month.  Then there will likely be weeks of trials, crew familiarisation, drills, and inspections.  Fingers crossed she gets in service for Xmas!


Is there a delivery date yet?

Thanks Steven.

Strange track for Ulysses this evening. As she entered Dublin Bay she turned and is now heading south-east. Adventurer is running slightly behind schedule but is going in the right direction!

Now that the Yeats is back from her Sea trials whats next ?Have the Scrubbers still to be fitted or is she ready to be handed over to ICG ?
I think she still has to head to Denmark to have her scrubbers fitted. Alf Pollak is still in Odense.

Will fsg release a statement or update on the current circumstances? Some of it is beyond their control but it would be nice to know some dates and for them to stick to them without continuously postponing it. Doesn't look like she's ready to go today at all
