Ore Fabrica

When the Antipodean Mariner returned to Subic yesterday, a familiar sight was missing from the lineup of ships in the bay.

Vale's Ore Fabrica has moved from anchor to alongside Keppel's ship repair facility. The Pilot advised that she has gone into the Yard for 'modifications'. The cranes on 'Fabrica are controlled by a single computer system which according to sources mean all the cranes stop if an individual crane has a fault.

So far, 7 weeks since Ore Fabrica moved a tonne of ore...

  1. I've worked as a computer programmer for over 30 years. I've seen a lot of crazy requests; usually in the name of saving some money. This is one of those 'features' that makes me shake my head in disbelief.
