Very fittingly, this news appeared in Maasmond newsclippings today: https://deme-group.prezly.com/dp2-jack-up-vessel-goliath-sets-sails-to-china-for-first-offshore-wind-projects
The Keng Sheng Kou is a very familiar vessel to me. I have attended this one several times, both as Superint./Loadmaster for COSCO, as MWS and as Cargo Owner's Rep.
Here she is at Lihir Island, PNG, with a Power Barge for a gold mine on deck:
The mine site was inside the crater of a volcano, which had been dormant for many years, but still with heat to drive drive generators. Not enough for their requirement, yet some being drained off:
One side of the crater had collapsed to form a natural harbour, but unfortunately exposed to the long swells of the Pacific. The only place that was reasonably sheltered were at the wharf, so we had to Mediterranean- moore, with broadside in the swell for the discharge.
Here she is with the cargo off and deck dry aft:
One of the more interesting but challenging discharges and the first time I attended as Superint./Loadmaster for COSCO.
OK so a bit OT, but seeing KSK brought back memories.
