This ship is currently located at the KeppelVerolme shipyard in the Netherlands. It is undergoing maintenance on multiple things, but mainly the legs. They are repainting them and repairing dents etcetera. Also some new equipment is being installed on deck. I have been on-board last week, when some sea-men asked me onboard for a cup of coffee.

Worked on it also in Rotterdam, did it make it as far as Dover. The welding on that job was done by a decent squad in all conditions, good memories of Rotterdam.
