Incase anyone asks the crane in the centre of the picture is a shore crane.

Hi Old Strawbs
Just out of interest, has the barge got its own tug. Seem to have seen a red-hulled one when she was at the MSC site itself but there never seems to be a mention of the tug or tugs involved!
Many thanks

Hello Peter, Tug is Smit Madura. She left to go back to the wreck site, as soon as the Barge was berthed. Iv'e no Idea when the box transfer will begin again. Rgds
