Here is the Normand Prosper photographed recently in Lerwick - so there is still stuff going on up there. This ship is an STX AH12 CD built at Braattvaag in 2010. The class is probably the most powerful in the offshore business with 32,000 bhp and a bollard pull of 338 tons. They are obviously intended to do more than drag semi-submersibles around. They'd easily pull the corner off one.

Photograph taken the other day by Scott Boulter and posed here on 3rd October 2016.
