Ile de Brehat Cable Ship
On Wednesday at 3.00am, Kathy was woken up by a humming made by a strange-looking ship. I have to say that this photo reminds me of the opening sequence from The Usual Suspects.I’m glad to say that there was no giant explosion but Kathy’s curiosity got the better of her and she got up again at 6.00am to find out what the ship was.
It’s Alcatel’s cable ship Ile de Batz, somewhat further up the river from where Alcatel’s submarine works live on the peninusla. I don’t know what it’s doing on Greenwich Reach pier; Kathy’s not seen a cable ship there before. I guess it could be – well – laying cable.
Wanna know how they do it? Check this out. I particularly enjoyed the dramatic music.
Sorry – this post should have appeared yesterday; I had some technical problems.
