BONGA as complete alongside at AMEC Wallsend 10/2003.
BONGA's hull was built by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea for the owner operator Shell.
She was then towed to the Tyne for the topsides to be installed by AMEC.

MAERSK LOGGER is "tail end Charlie".
I guess she's positioned there just in case something goes really wrong and they need to back the BONGA up.
