Start of the main firing line in the bow.
End of the main firing line in the stern with a view on the stinger
The main firing line goes over the length of the whole ship (300 m) and consists of a line-up station, 5 welding stations, 3 tensioners, a none destructive test station and a seeling station.
The stinger guides the pipe into the first S-bend and extends the ship with 150 m.
A 'small' pipe in an opened tensioner. The pipe is covered in concrete to make it sink and to protect it.
A view from the aftbridge. In the back you can see the stinger. The crane (one of two) on the right is used to hoist pipes on board. The ship is almost constantly resuplied wit new pipes while at sea. There are two bridges, one for normal sailing and one for pipelaying.
