Viking Poseidon

By spotogspindel | November 11, 2008

Eidesvik & Co As big new ship!

The ship isn´t finished until December /January, but the Christening of the ship is already on Friday, so I´ve spent the past two days onboard decorating.

Johannes Hjelland and Tanja Huglen and I have contributed with a third each in the decor on this GRAND ship.

Above is a 240 cm long cut and painted, wooden picture. Part tradition (the “rosepainting” is a part of the norwegian folk-culture), a little mythology ( Poseidon arrives riding a wave) and part decoration (it was fun to break free from the square frame for once!)

More pictures from onboard:

…and in a setting (even though the curtains aren´t up yet). And yes, those are real leather couches. And real wooden floors. It´s like a floating hotel!

“Tufte”  I don´t know what that would translate in to in English, it doesn´t say in the dictionary. It´s the wooden thing you sit on in a rowing boat.

 Below is an excert from a local newspaper:

http://www.h-avis.no/article/20081027/NYHETER/348494320/1058/AKTUELT

«Viking Poseidon» is the first of three new Eidesvik-ships with the revoulutionary X-BOW-design. 

 

The 130 meter long ship will be a base for advanced underwater-vehicles, so-called ROVs. These will inspect and repair offshore-installations in the Mexican Gulf, which have been badly beaten by hurricanes the past years. 

Under normal circumstances a number of 70 – 80 people will be working here. All in all there  is room for a crew of 106 onboard. 14-15 of those will be Norwegian, most of them from Bømlo, where Eidesvik Shipping is based.
