Very impressive, these generators are massive. Did you see it sailing out?

It's still there at the moment, Marcel (Monday morning), but I will keep an eye on it via AIS. Unfortunately access to get photographs is extremely restricted, and I would have to hire a boat to be able to get a picture of the ship sailing away!
