ICS Integrity - January 2018

On 13th January I performed a compass adjustment aboard mv ICS Integrity, a newly arrived bunker supply ship chartered from China for three years. Her role is to transport bunker fuel from the Geelong refinery to Sydney and also to fill in as an extra bunker ship there in peak times. We sailed from the Shell refinery pier at 1300 and I disembarked with the pilot outside the heads at 1915 - a slow ship!
