I am still being sent a few photos, mostly by Captain Jan Plug, who commands a pipe laying ship out in Brazil. This is the Bram Titan, which is operated by the Edison Chouest Brazilian subsidiary, and as a result we are not provided with any information about it. But what we do know is that it entered service in 2015, it is 96 metres long and 26 metres wide and it has four Cats which collectively deliver 27,000 bhp. I also notice that unusually it has an azimuthing stern thruster and, as seems mostly to be the case with American owned ships, it is operated with very little freeboard.
