Another Ulstein UT-755 platform supply ship arrived on Monday. HIGHLAND ROVER, seen passing the Gantocks light as she headed upriver to Shieldhall, was built (like MALAVIYA THIRTY which arrived yesterday) by Aker Yards at Braatvaag. She is a little older, having been completed in 1998 for Gulf Offshore and until 2007, she flew the British flag. Now registered in Panama, HIGHLAND ROVER is 71.8 metres in length and had a deadweight of 3,200 tonnes. HIGHLAND ROVER is on long-term charter to Allseas, and has worked with SOLITAIRE in a support role for quite some time.
