MS HARMONY OF THE SEAS am 17.10.15 in St. Nazaire

MS HARMONY OF THE SEAS - größtes Kreuzfahrtschiff der Welt
Die "Harmony of the Seas" wird aktuell in der STX-Werft in Saint-Nazaire gebaut und wird 2016 in Dienst gestellt. Sie ist dann das größte Schiff der Oasis-Klasse und damit auch das größte Schiff der Welt (225.282 BRZ). Sie übertrifft die bereits 362m langen Schwesterschiffe noch um 2,15m in der Länge und 5,5m in der Breite. Auf ihren 16 Decks werden in 2.747 Kabinen bis zu 5.479 Gäste Platz finden. Auf der "Harmony of the Seas" wird es statt Bordkarten die "Wow-Bänder" geben, also Armbänder, die dann als Zahlungsmittel und Kabinenschlüssel genutzt werden.
Das Foto wurde von Bord der LOIRE PRINCESSE aus aufgenommen, die am 2.4.15 als kleinstes je bei STX gebautes Kreuzfahrtschiff (90 m L, 15 m B, 0,70 m Tg, 700 t, 2x 400, 2 x 500 kW Radantrieb Volvo Penta) in Dienst gestellt wurde für Reisen auf der Loire, dem mit 1050 km längsten Fluss Frankreichs.



Dutch Freighter ‘Flinterstar’ Sinks After Collision With LNG Tanker
A Dutch freighter has sank after colliding nearly head on with the Marshall Islands-flagged LNG tanker Al-Oraiq in the North Sea, about 8 miles northwest of the Belgium port of Knokke-Heist on Tuesday morning.
All 12 crew members from the general cargo / containership, named Flinterstar, have been rescued. The crew members were rescued from the cold North Sea, including one person who was reportedly suffering from hypothermia, according to a Coast Guard spokesperson.
Photos of the Flinterstar show partially sunk, resting on a sandbank in calm seas and clear visibility. Dutch ship owner Flinter has confirmed that the ship sank, the crew is safe and the vessel is ‘stable’. A small oil sheen has been reported. “At this time, we are talking to salvage companies together with insurance to decide how the vessel will be salvaged,” Flinter said in a statement.
The 122,000 DWT Al-Oraiq was also damaged, but was able to continue to its destination of Zeebrugge, Belgium with the assistance of a tug.
The 129 meter in length and 8,850 GT Flinterstar was built in 2002 and is flagged in the Netherlands. The vessel had just departed Antwerp bound for Bilbao, Spain when it collided with the Al Oraiq.

Livestock carrier capsizes leaving cattle stranded
A livestock carrier capsized and sank while berthed at Porto Vila do Conde in Barcarena, Brazil, leaving cattle stranded on top of the overturned hull.
Some 5,000 animals were onboard the Lebanon-flagged Haidar (6,419 dwt, built 1994; pictured) at the time of the sinking, which happened within two hours of the vessel capsizing, local reports say.
The vessel reportedly developed a list while moored at the berth, but the crew were evacuated before the ship turned over.

Hundred of ships are waiting for demolition at the beach of Alang

The shipyards at Alang recycle approximately half of all ships salvaged around the world. It is considered the world's largest graveyard of ships. The yards are located on the Gulf of Khambat, 50 kilometres southeast of Bhavnagar. Large supertankers, car ferries, container ships, and a dwindling number of ocean liners are beached during high tide, and as the tide recedes, hundreds of manual laborers dismantle each ship, salvaging what they can and reducing the rest to scrap. The salvage yards at Alang have generated controversy about working conditions, workers' living conditions, and the impact on the environment. One major problem is that despite many serious work-related injuries, the nearest full service hospital is 50 kilometres away in Bhavnagar.
