Thank you for the video.
I was watching for a while at work yesterday and didn't realize the ship for the full time was being pushed backward.
Why didn't it turn around or was the area not deep enough to do that and had to stay very on course?

Thank you.

i dont know the true technical answer but from what i remember from watching various shows with ships doing a similar conveyance, the ships is pushed backward because it is easier for the all of the tugs to push/pull the ship.

the river ems is not so deep and they have to dam water to do the transfer. if they have at one place problems with the depth they can use the Azipods to push water under the ship ( because they are backward ). not sure if it was better to navigate for the tugs too.

Yesterday almost dark she moored in Eemshaven. We could see her testing the systems. It was windy so a real life time situation. In a few hours she will be our neighbour.😍 Hope to make a few pictures.

Veel politie bij vertrek Norwegian Encore naar Eemshaven

PAPENBURG02 oktober 2019, 08:56

Onder zware politiebegeleiding is het nieuwe cruiseschip Norwegian Encore van Papenburg naar de Eemshaven gevaren. Politiemensen op de wal, een politiehelicopter en twee boten van de WSP begeleidden de tocht tot de stuw bij Gandersum, die het schip dinsdag 1 oktober passeerde. Tussen Papenburg en de stuw stonden politiemensen bij bruggen, sluizen en in krappe bochten.

Courtesy of Google Translate:

The new cruise ship Norwegian Encore sailed from Papenburg to Eemshaven under heavy police supervision. Police officers ashore, a police helicopter and two boats from the WSP accompanied the journey to the weir at Gandersum, which passed the ship on Tuesday 1 October. Between Papenburg and the weir, policemen stood at bridges, locks and in tight turns.

 

I heard about this. Apparently it was due to a risk of environmentalist protests.
