Hi Andi,
photo shows the Howaldtswerke Deutsche Werft (HDW) Hamburg, Werk Ross, taken after September 1970.
In the upper right a Friesenstein-class from Norddeutscher Lloyd with a Hapag funnel.
OTTO HAHN was not build in Hamburg but 1968 in Kiel and was fitted out there, she might have been in Hamburg for maintenance.
The large tanker on the bottom right is KOBERG, IMO 6504412.
In the center floating dock is one of 7 Woermann`s Russia-built PALABORA-class taken over from Willy Bruns, another one to port of DIALA.
The twin funnel Deutsche Shell tanker in center dock would be DIALA, IMO 6611796.
The smoker in center looks like an INDIAN SUCCES-class built by the yard.
The tanker in upper left might be Finnish TIISKERI:

The freighter to the right looks also Finnish-built like this:

Koberg, the former Jalinga of Anders Jahre's Rederi, Norway.

Built 1964 in Kiel as Jalinga. 1967 Koberg, 1972 Asopos, 1974 Catamarca. Broken up in 1983 in Kaohsiung.

My guess is, that the photo is from 1972 when Koberg was about to become Asopos or from 1974 when Asopos became Catamarca.

Regards.

The EAC ship further away, I also think is Boma - but with a HAPAG funnel.

Around 1975 ( possibly also a little earlier ) Boma was chartered to Hapag - Lloyd and was using their funnel.

Regards.

I think the Shell Tanker with two funnels is Drupa. Two wheel fenders and two yokohama fenders fitted on the portside.

[COLOR="Blue"]Looking at this picture and with the benefit of retrograde, grey(ham) grey matter tech-no-knowledge 'e', I wonder how many reading remember the 'approach'?

Serious hat on! Promise! The 'Pit' route, a narrow, buoyed channel that you did NOT stray from, particularly if foggy, as you were then very much in 'drifting mines' waters. The good news was that if you happened to have the WWII U boat skipper as your pilot you knew you were in safe hands. I always found that 'somewhat ironic'; he would cease explaining the thickness of the bombproof, reinforced concrete in the U boat pens you were passing, his former 'home', to assure all on the bridge just that ~ "Don't Vurry, you are in safe Hans"![/COLOR]

@ ray laws: DRUPA seems fine, or sister DARINA?
