As time is passing the UT 755s, once the most prolific of the offshore supply vessels working out of European ports, are migrating to other parts of the world, and even being scrapped. This is the UT 755 LN Island Pride working head to wind at the Elgin Platform in the North Sea in 2008. It has by now been replaced by another ship of the same name, and was sold to a company operating in the Caspian Sea, so made the transit through the Russian waterways to get there.
