M/T Eternity Built 1988 39,834 DWT

Well not many people get to go on board one of these oil tankers so i thought i would post some of my pics. Its the MT Eternity, which is a products/crude carrier which was built in 1988 Sth Korea. Its a medium size vessel which can carry approx 25,000mt of cargo... If you have any questions just let me know...

First was dry dock, El Ferrol Spain:



A few other carriers around getting ready for dry dock...



Inside part of the engine room



Rudder & Propeller





Looking under the keel, notice a few minor dents from an earlier minor colision with a wharf...




Side View



Manifolds where the hoses are connected to load/discharge cargo...



View from the bridge



Tugs getting ready to assist with movements...



Name/Country of Registration...



Radar while in a North Sea convoy



The voyage which was completed



Coming along side at Ventspils, the sound of crushing ice was cool



Arm connected ready for loading



Riga airport waiting for my flight back to London...



Hope you enjoyed.

PS below didnt happen when i was on board but happened to another one of our vessels when it went through cold weather in the Baltic up near Finland:
