W.B.YEATS DELIVERY IS DELAYED(Read 48878 times)
Re: W.B.YEATS DELIVERY IS DELAYED Reply #60 on: October 23, 2018, 02:59:18 PM
According to chat on German shipping board WB due to start a 3 week trial on Friday 26th with a hand over to IF mid November and expected entry into service at the beginning of December. She is expected to be docking in Denmark during trials as FSG have no space for her.

She will undergo around 3-5 days sea trials off the island of Bornholm. She will then brifly return to FSG before heading to Fayard in Odense presumably to have scrubbers fitted. Then back to FSG for handover and delivery voyage to Dublin via Cherbourg in mid-November.

Iíll be there in Cherbourg to make a few shots of her if the weather allow it.

I think they just finished the upgrade of the linkspan 2 in CH.

Has berth 3 at Cherbourg been upgraded?

Theres a lot of manpower being thrown onto her this week both day and night.

I suspect they will turn her around to remove the aft workshop and install the port lifeboats if they are not already hoisted on board.

Still some paint work to be done.

Has berth 3 at Cherbourg been upgraded?

Berth 3 tipped over in 2011 and replaced by current berth 6, which is a large single-deck linskpan. According to Cherbourg harbour masters, the demand from IF was to get a double deck berth. Only berth 4 (sorry for my mistake in last message) was adapted for the Yeats, but still needed some works.

I saw the workshop cabins being removed from the ship over a week ago . Carried thru the car deck in sections on a large mast lift fork lift and then craned off the bow.

 :) That means only the port life boats remaining and i have a feeling they were lifed off a barge or from the water directly.

Not too sure what to make of this, reports of an investigation by the federal prosecutor in Flensburg into a complaint of sabotage in relation to the WB. Apparently the shipyard have filed the complaint

"The prosecutor Flensburg confirmed on Thursday the receipt of a criminal complaint. It is about the suspicion of property damage, said the Chief Prosecutor in Flensburg, Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt. According to our editorial staff, an outlet valve on the cooling water circuit was closed, causing one of the ferry's four main engines to overheat. According to people who are familiar with the construction of the ferry, this must have been done intentionally. Corresponding information and assessments have been communicated to the staff of the shipyard management, which has now turned on the authorities. The incident is said to have happened on Wednesday last week."

The shipyard will be glad to see the back of the W.B when it leaves, the level of shenanigans now reaches parts we never thought possible.

Would imagine that once sea trials start she will not return to shipyard and would still assume it will need a drydock and hull clean before handover.

It doesn't look like the sea trials will start today. Maybe there was some serious damage caused to the engine, the cherry picker they used to paint the upper car deck door is still there.



Re: W.B.YEATS DELIVERY IS DELAYED Reply #72 on: October 26, 2018, 02:53:48 PM
If the engine is really damaged which i doubt expect a IF stock market announcement.



Re: W.B.YEATS DELIVERY IS DELAYED Reply #73 on: October 26, 2018, 04:32:54 PM
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

If it's just hull cleaning that's required that can be done with the ship in the water  There's a system to do that which clings to the hull below the waterline and scrubs and blasts it .
