Our Tasmanic Winter took the Northern Sea route along Russia’s north coast from China to Rotterdam. The northern voyage via NSR can reduce the journey time by up to eight days compared with the traditional southern route. On board: 24 new vessels built at Damen yards in Changde and Yichang. https://heavyliftnews.com/shipping/vessels-from-china-for-damen-via-arctic-route https://www.damen.com/en/news/2018/10/24_damen_stock_vessels_to_arrive_from_china_in_the_port_of_rotterdam_via_arctic_route https://www.heavyliftpfi.com/sectors/a-winters-tale-for-rhb-terminal/
After several days with thick ice and required ice breaker support our Atlantic Winter is heading further towards Europe with full speed now. With deep blue water and sunny sky even this area looks quite comfortable! We wish our crew and vessel a safe voyage.
