Ribadeo, Figueras, Spain

By spotogspindel | July 23, 2014

I am in Spain on business! Along the Northern coast of Spain in the Asturias-area, there is a small town called Figueras, and in this small town there is a ship-yard. They happen to be building Møkster Shipping´s newest vessel, an advanced supply-ship. A couple of weeks ago I sent all the art down through Europe, and now I am here myself to hang all the pictures on the walls onboard. A couple of the pictures are so big they had to be fastened onto the frames onboard.


The small town where I am staying a couple of days, as seen from the ship.


And this is what the ship-yard looks like, also from the ship. It´s a nice atmosphere here. People are hard-working, but not stressed. All day I was fortunate enough to have Vladimir from Lithuania help me with the pictures.


The vessel is as I mentioned quite advanced. Rolls-Royce are delivering the design for the ship, and a lot of the technical equipment. This is from the bridge, and the steering-department is much smaller and easier to overcome. Before the units were SO big, now they´ve made a more practical version. Did I mention this is a prototype?


Here is the ship itself, hidden behind all the stuff one needs on a quay when building big boats! Stril Luna is the name, and tomorrow I´ll share the art with you!
