Ocean Endeavour sails off
Another of the accommodation vessels used by Shetland Gas Plant workers, the Ocean Endeavour, left Lerwick Harbour today.
The departure of the cruise ship leaves just the three barges, the Sans Vitesse at Victoria Pier and the Bibby Stockholm and Kalmar at Holmsgarth, left in the town.
The cruise ship Gemini and the barge Bibby Challenge, housing mainly BP workers, remain based at Scalloway.
Preparation for the Ocean Endeavour‘s move began at 2pm, with the harbour tugs Kebister and Knab both involved. After a period of manoevring she finally headed away under her own steam at around 2.30pm.
The Ocean Endeavour was on her way to Portland in Dorset for orders. After that her destination was unknown.
