Here was 5 in this series.
This is the view from the bridge looking forward on Key Frontier, built 2011 in Maizuru, Japan. From this point to the bow is 638′ and to the stern is about 100′. Note the approaching tug and barge.
The length on the tug is 64′ .
The orange tanker in the distance is 800′. See the crewman standing on the edge of hold #4 just to the left of the green half mark for the helipad? He’s around 6′.
He’s a spotter for activity below inside the hold.
can hold holds 30 tons when full.
When a hold is just about empty, a loader is lowered to assist in filling the bucket.
These trucks can hold up to 40 tons. The ship transports between 50 and 60 thousand tons.
Safe driving on the ice.
