On a routine Main Engine Crankcase inspection in 1999 I found extensive cracks in some of the main bearing support girders. Repairs were not feasible the only remedy was to fit a complete new Main Engine bed plate. In the last quarter of 2001 Myrina entered Sembawang shipyard Singapore to have this work carried out Phill Williams was the Engineer superintendent and I was also there as a temporary Engine Superintendent due to the amount of Main Engine work involved. This was completed and the vessel sailed with the Main Engine fully operational in November.

Hi,

Just want to add: look through OCIMF "Ship to Ship transfer guide" publication. Myrina's picture is there! Ship's name is withheld on the picture. However, I saw original version of that digital photo.

Monday March 3rd 2003
A Schreiner helicopter took pilots Peter Juk, Paul Jong and Han Luik and me from the Maasvlakte to the Shell Tanker "MYRINA".
The Myrina, loaded with 330.336 m3 crude, was 60 km off coast. With a depth of 21.6 m, it entered the 8th Petroleum harbour via the 'Eurogeul' (the waterway in the Northsea, near Rotterdam). It got assistance from the tugboats Thamesbank, Smit Clyde, Smit Humber and Smit Loire.

A boy's dream came true thanks to:

Wim van de Wiel (Shell Nederland Raffinaderij)
Hans Ammerlaan (Shell Nederland Raffinaderij)
John Galbraith (Master of the Myrina)
Jeannette Vermeer (Nederlandse Loodswezen)

Jolanda Vijgenboom (Nederlandse Loodswezen)
Stefan van Zanten (Bureau Overbosch, Politie Haaglanden)
Ineke en Hans van Wingerden (Bureau Overbosch, Politie Haaglanden)

and off course my wife Truus
