Building the big 'uns

Post by Deepol » Fri Jul 25, 2014 1:17 pm

Shell VLCC LAMPAS under construction in the building dock at Belfast in 1975. She was broken up at Chittagong in December 1998.
Astern in the foreground is the beginnings of I think either LEPETA or LIMA again for Shell.

Lampas was laid up in Loch Striven for a while where I took this in 1985.

LEPETA taken from the top of UGANDA's bridge at Belfast in June 1976. For a VLCC she had a long life being broken up on Gadani Beach arriving there on January 14th 1999.
