Norland


image001~80.jpg

The Norland was a P&O roll-on/roll-off ferry operating between Kingston upon Hull in Yorkshire, England and Zeebrugge, Belgium. The 27,000 tonne ferry was built in 1974 by AG Weser, Bremerhaven for Dutch North Sea Ferries partners Nordzee Verdiensten N.V. The ship transferred to P&O North Sea Ferries in 1996.

During the Falklands War, the Ministry of Defence chartered the Norland to be used as a troopship in the Task Force sent to retake the Falkland Islands from Argentina. Norland was among the ships to enter San Carlos Water during the amphibious landings of Royal Marines and Paratroopers. The ship survived attack from the Argentine Air Force and at the end of the war, repatriated the defeated Argentine troops back home alongside the SS Canberra.

In 2002, the Norland was sold to SNAV as the SNAV Sicilia for service between Naples and Palermo. (Source: Wikipedia)

Pride of Aquitaine (IMO: 8908466)


PrideAquitaine.jpg

The Prins Filip was bought by Stena and renamed the Stena Royal in 1998 and soon chartered to P&OStena for freight relief duties on the Dover-Zeebrugge run. After a period of apparent deliberation, P&OStena then took the vessel on a more permanant basis, refitting her for Dover-Calais service as the P&OSL Aquitaine, running in place of the P&OSL Picardy. With the departure of Stena from the joint venture, the ship became Pride of Aquitaine.

Pride of Burgundy (IMO: 9015254)


image002~57.jpg

The final ship of a four-vessel order placed by P&O European Ferries in 1989, the P&OSL Burgundy should have been delivered, like her sisters, as a super freighter for Dover-Zeebrugge operations. Instead during construction, the plans changed and the vessel was completed with a full complement of passenger accomodation - the possibility for such a transformation had been built into the design during the planning stages.

Built: 1993
Owners: P. & O. Ferries
IMO: 9015254
Displacement: 28138
Dimensions: 179,40m x 28,30m x 6,27m

Pride of Dover (IMO: 8517736)


POSDover.jpg

M/V Pride of Dover is a cross-channel ferry built in 1987 for Townsend Thoresen. Pride of Dover was the last new ship to appear in service with the famous Townsend Thoresen orange hull though she was delivered with the P&O house flag painted on her funnel which was changed from the 'TT' logo during construction. Townsend Thoresen was renamed P&O European Ferries late in 1987 and Pride of Dover was swiftly repainted in the new company colours. The industry generally regards Pride Of Dover and her sister Pride Of Calias as the most succesful ferries ever built for English channel service. The ships boast superb handling characteristics and excellent seakeeping abilities. Between 1998 and 2002 she was under the control of P&O Stena Line and carried the name P&OSL Dover from 1999 until she was repainted into new P&O Ferries livery when her name returned to Pride of Dover.

Pride of Dover primarily operates the Dover–Calais route but on a number of occasions has made crossings between Dover and Zeebrugge as a result of industrial action in France. (Source: Wikipedia)
