Taharoa Express has done it again!

 
Only saw the land based activity but, after seeing this ex Russian Mil Mi-8MTV-1 helicopter making numerous trips outbound with mini excavators and bobcats I had a deja vu feeling?




It reminded me of the same thing that happened a few years ago and suspected it may have been another ship like last time requiring its cargo leveled. After all, at this time of year it was hardly going to be a DOC contract?
Considering this machine and another smaller personnel carrier one, both headed in the direction of Open Sea, I suspected it wasn't erecting a mobile phone tower either.

 
And sure enough, thats exactly what it was the media are reporting, in fact its exactly the same ship as last time!
