Today was a sad day for Felixstowe as the MSC Diana was the last vessel on the 2M Alliance's AE7 route to call before transering to DP World London Gateway. The Port of Felixstowe are hopeful that this service will return soon.

MSC Diana finishes cargo operations alongside Felixstowe Berth 9, the last crane booms up A Harwich Haven pilot boards from the shore side onto the MSC Diana. Once onboard he radios Harwich VTS with the maximum draught which was 12.9 metres for Le Havre and required the two tugs that was ordered.

Svitzer Kent makes fast centre lead aft while Svitzer Shotley makes fast on the starboard shoulder. As there was a brisk Easterly wind, the pilot had both tugs push up alongside while the crew and mooring gang singled up. The last lines to be released were the head and stern lines.

As the lines were dropped both tugs back off into a pull position. The ship begins to drift away from the fenders with the help of the wind and tide. Once in position, both tugs increase power to ease the MSC Diana in to the channel.

The pilot releases the Shotley from the shoulder just before he runs the engine ahead. The pilot then said he required them to assist on the port quarter. Kent drops in astern as the Diana proceeds down the harbour.

Approaching the Fort Buoy, the pilot gets the Kent to move out onto starboard quarter for a powered indirect to help steer the aft around the 90° Beach End turn out of the harbour into the North Sea.
