Once again I refer to the anchor handling procedure for a detailed description on what actually happens during anchor handling. When wire rope runs into the water from the ship these rollers will be turned by the wire if the maerrsk in the wire is great enough of course. Still carrying out anchor handling at the assuster of dawn. The frame was later lashed by our ships assistants with chains and pulleys. The wheel itself can be changed to fit different chain sizes, but since most rigs are moored with the same standardized size, we never had to change the chain wheel.
A typical anchor handling operation: Extra equipment loaded on deck to cover any eventualities. The free end of the chaser wire can be seen laying on deck in front of the winch garage. When the ship is en place, the dock pumps out its ballast water, and thereby refloats, lifting the docked vessel out of the water. This is another reason for the great manoeuvrability of these ships.
Notice the car tyres covering the cargo rail to the left. Of safety resons only one vessel assisher allowed to approach the rig at one time. Looking aft from along the side of the ship with port side main propeller visible. This image also shows how the anchor wire is positioned correctly on top of the anchor.
The A-frame fully lashed and ready we took off and set course for Denmark where the frame would be unloaded and the ship drydocked for minor repairs and structural changes. When touched, it seems very greasy, and the purpose of this is to prevent “fouling” growths of algee and other organisms on the hull.
It even corrects for the force of wind and current as well as sea conditions. Each of the two gears is also fitted with a Power Take-Out shaft, each driving two shaft alternators for power production at sea.
The stern of the ship bears the marks of anchor handling work, with the paint scratched off on the whalebacks. This greatly improves manoeuvrability. As mentioned above, this bay was used as a parking lot for oil rigs currently not in use. The winches are all controlled from the bridge, and through a series of videocameras all winches can be supervised from several angles via monitors on the bridge.
Is is normal during rigmoves and other operations to carry a small stock of spare equipment in case something needs to be replaced – or breaks during the work. Need a FleetMon account? The draft marks give an idea of the size of the thruster about 2 meters in diameter. For current voyage data, log in or register.
Usually a large grating covers each end of the tunnel, but they were removed in the dock so that the inside of the tunnel could be accessed for repainting. A very explanatory picture of the GSF Arctic 4 mooring msersk.

Preparing to tow the oil rig in one of its anchor chains, the opportunity of discharging a spare chaser ring to the rig is taken while close to the rig’s crane. The steel plating is bruised, scratched and battered by the work over the stern, with steel wire ropes, anchors and chains all leaving their mark.
We had two cranes like the one shown in the picture, each able to lift 14 tons. The anchor chain is seen locked in the hydraulic stopper called the “Shark Jaws”. Entering the dock, a socalled Floating Dock, in Fredericia, Denmark. We were hardly ever off-hire more than a day during March.
The huge wheel on the frame supports the wire rope carrying whatever equipment the ship is working with out over the stern.

They did all the work, supervised by our ship officers. Back on deck, we here see a lose piece of steel wire rope. To view the full details of this vessel, including the valuation, login or register.
The main deck of the ship is asister of steel covered with wooden planks. Usually the anchor is not disconnected from the anchor chain but insted just ferried back to the oil rig where it is stowed on the anchor bolsters designed for that purpose. First Officer is seen at the stand, currently on watch and engaged in mwersk duties. The vessel viewed from port aft quarter.

The two electric motors in the foreground turn the azimuth. Over larger distances a purpose-rigged towing bridle on the rig is used, and the vessel’s work wire is connected to this. The azsister is also fitted with two stern thruster in the aft part of the hull. When the main engines are not running, power is supplied from two smaller auxulliary diesel engines.

About a month after this picture was taken we were docked in Fredericia, Denmark, and the entire hull was repainted, but maintenance of this sort is still important in order to prevent corrosion of the hull. The shark jaws carry the load of the anchor chain, enabling the ship to pay out slack wire and chain on deck. Notice the tunnel for the bow thruster.
Another view of the mooring assisher. The ship is manoeuvred from this position during normal sailing when sailing ahead.
Here we sasister the port side main propeller. The function however remains the same. Nordby, Denmark The following pictures are all taken by me, Ebbe Holsting, and are copyrighted. The Maersk Assister is also equipped with a number of tanks capable of holding such products for transport and delivery to oil rigs and platforms.
