Identification Request

Post by Dennis Maccoy » Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:44 pm

I photographed this vessel at Ridderkerk on 23 June this year, whilst on a Waterbus journey between Dordrecht and Rotterdam. The name has been removed but a port of registry of Rendsburg is visible. I thought at first that it was a tug-barge unit but closer inspection seems to suggest either remarkably good fit-up or a permanent connection. Can anyone help me identify the vessel please?

Thanks Henk - good detective work. I presume that the modified bow is for icebreaking in harbour or on the Kiel canal.
Regards,
Dennis.

I don't know Dennis. It seems her bow could be openend in split part. Unfortunitly I can't find her in older Lloyds Registers and Equasus can not find her history as well.

Certainly an unusual conversion - perhaps the additional bow structure was built and fitted as two separate pieces - one of life's mysteries!

Dennis
