It was a beautifully crisp, clear winter’s day as Geest Line and the crew of MV TIMOR STREAM celebrated the vessel’s 100th voyage under the Geest Line flag.
It was an especially important occasion as the current Captain, Capt. Dobralskii was also Captain for Timor Stream’s first voyage for Geest Line, back in 2008, also on board was Chief Engineer Kopylov who was signing off after a contract the Chief Engineer. Kopylov was on board for Timor’s first voyage as Second Engineer, since then he has completed 11 contracts on Timor Stream, four as Chief Engineer.
During Timor’s sterling service for Geest Line she has steamed in excess of 770,000 nautical miles, which is equivalent to 35 trips around the world, burning in excess of 33,000 tons of fuel.
