The oil rig ‘Balder’, which had already passed through Madeira in February 2002 and in March 2013, is again off the region, having stopped a few miles south of Funchal.
The rig left Rotterdam on 28th July and is on its way to Puerto Madero in Mexico
The presence of this ‘show’ began to be noticed in recent days, having ‘entered’ the west side. Everything indicates that this presence is a technical scale, before going transatlantic voyage to the Americas.
I have PHOTOS HERE of a similar Rig that refuelled in Funchal January 2011
