Ship to ship operations are quite common at Synergy, but a transfer operation involving two VLCC sisterships is rare. Seen here, is the  “Silverstone” transferring to her sistership the “Babylon”

“Sisters share most things, and are generally close-knit. They support and look out for each other, and often stay tight together. This homely wisdom found both image and metaphor recently in an operation off Lomé, West Africa. Congratulations to my counterpart Capt. Anatoliy Terzi onboard the Babylon and both teams for a safe approach, STS and departure.” says Captain Biby Chacko from onboard the Silverstone as he shared with us these photos taken from an intrinsically safe camera.
