MARINE CARRIER AB

Marine Carrier is a tug and barge company based in the port of Pitea in Sweden. They only came to our attention when our eagle eyed contributors in the Kiel Canal photographed one of their vessels. They claim to have the ability to support anchor-handling operations, hence their inclusion here.

At the 2014 update they are down to one vessel worthy of inclusion on this site. 

Updated 3rd October 2014.

Comments This vessel may be the only remaining example of the original Maersk B class. It has had a chequered career since being purchased by Marine Carrier, including being captured by pirates in Nigeria. It was claimed by one of our contributors to have been purchased off the scrap heap.

This ship no longer exists on the company website, but on the other hand one of the many ship tracking sites indicates that it is in Nigeria. We could therefore surmise that it has been sold to a Nigerian company but that they have not changed the name.
