Last Wednesday 6 anchor handling tugs moved the 40272gt Oil Rig CASTORO 7 onto its station in the York Field off the East Yorks coast. It is apparently visible from Withernsea area. The 6 tugs were MAERSK TRACER, MAERSK TACKLER, NORMAND FLIPPER, NORMAND CARRIER, BLIZZARD and SEA BEAR.

She appears to be a pipelaying rig looking at her photos on ShipSpotting.com - we've had ENERGY GIRL in and out of Alex dock serving her. There has been quite a bit of activity off Easington in the last few months, wonder if she's sorting a new pipeline out?
