Captain Nihat

Here it goes a series of photographs about the bulk carrier "Captain Nihat" that was moored a few days in the port unloading his cargo in this case - corn. 
In the first photo I tryed to look for a new angle to photograph the vessel (that's a part of the port that it's a bit dificult to photograph the angles are not the best), but in this case I liked the result.
In the second and third photos we can see the two cranes that work to unload the corn. The big one it's the familiar Gottwald. The other one it's a Grove Mobile telescopic crane (sorry but I don't know the model).


  1. Great photos, the model is a Grove GMK 5180 with a max. lift capacity of 180 tons!


    1. Thanks a lot Mr Manuel for the information and for the kind words and for the information about the crane. Your blog it's an inspiration for me, great blog with great posts almost every day. Thank you very much.

      With my best regards
