One day in the life of 'RTM Flinders'

This sequence were taken in the course of one working day at Namura Shipyard, the 22nd of November 2012. During this day, the Mitsubishi UEC main engine was loaded, and the two sets of topside blocks attached to enclose Hold 3.

And since these photos were received, the bow and foc's'le have gone on;




'RTM Flinders' will be launched on 13th December, and join her sister 'Dias at the Fitting Out Quay. RTM Dias' will head out on sea trials on 9th December for testing and commissioning. Thanks again to Dr Paul and the KML Site Team for the great photographs.
