Seago Piraeus departs Felixstowe Trinity 3. Port swing off the berth with two tugs 15th January 2020


Seago Piraeus alongside starboard side to Felixstowe Trinity 3. Originally 11am departure but had to wait for services to come from the Maersk Gairloch. Finally the tugs had been stood down and waited near the Seago Piraeus. Pilot and mooring gang go to the Piraeus. Svitzer Deben is replaced by the Svitzer Kent.

Departure draught of 12.3 metres for her next port of Rotterdam. Two tugs for departure. Both on the centre leads fore and aft then a port swing off the berth to depart from Felixstowe Trinity 3. Carefully ease off the berth then the Kent pushes the stern around while Shotley swings the bow around. Once swung, the Shotley comes in to let go then Kent closes up to the transom to let go.
