A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER - My life on Höegh Trooper Week 4
Seafarers sure know how to throw a party! From very early in the morning on December 24 everyone was busy preparing sumptuos amounts of food and decorating the messroom. There was glitter, there were balloons, and there was even a photo booth, adorned with the logo of Höegh Trooper, so that everyone could have a postcard-like photo to send to family and friends. The ambience was merry and filled with laughter, even if the Christmas season without doubt is the hardest time of the year for the crew to be away from their loved ones.

A TROUBLED HEART- My life on Höegh Trooper Week 3
The engine is the steaming hot heart of the ship. After each brief visit to the engine room, I urgently need a cold shower, but the engineers seem unaffected by the heat: – It’s only 38 degrees today, says Harris, the second engineer. – In the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East, the temperature can surpass 50 degrees. At times, it’s only possible to work at night. Harris has worked in engine rooms for 13 years and still feels he’s learning something new every day. – When we reach Singapore, we’re replacing a staybolt, for instance. It has been broken since Belgium. I’ve never replaced a staybolt before.

What is RoRo shipping?
Roro (roll-on-roll-off) is a term mostly used in shipping. Roro shipping is a safe and reliable way of transporting vehicles, mining equipment, trucks, buses, boats, and agricultural machinery overseas by sea. Unlike container shipping, roro vessels are designed to accommodate cars and rolling cargo by allowing them to be driven or towed on and off the boat using rolltrailers. These vessels have dedicated ramps and parking areas to facilitate the efficient loading and unloading of cargo. It is considered the safest and cheapest way of heavy equipment transportation due to the easiness of loading and unloading. The cost of roro transportation is usually cheaper than the cost of a single container. This makes roro shipping the preferred choice of transportation for a wide range of industries, from automotive, and mining, to construction.

A HAPPY SHIP - My life on Höegh Trooper Week 2
Tamatave, Madagascar, was our first port of call. While strolling the dusty streets of this former French colony, I felt like a prisoner on the run. The crew didn’t have sufficient time to go ashore, but they spent their time in port wisely, bartering scrap metal and worn shoes for fruits and fresh fish with the locals.
