HANZE GOTEBORG for bunkers

The loaded bulker HANZE GOTEBORG arrived very early this morning. She sailed this afternoon around 2:30, giving no destination. Dutch registered, she was also built in the Netherlands in 2013.

Her recent sailing is somewhat odd. She spent 7 days in Tuxpan Mexico, then took 16 days to sail to Savannah. She spent 2 days there before sailing for St John's NFLD. She spent 13 hours there, then sailed for Halifax, Took Bunkers and sailed.

Update: I have been told (in a comment below) that she stopped in St. John's, NL due to contaminated fuel.  Once she offloaded it and made repairs, the crew realized they did not have enough fuel to continue the trip.  They had to revert to Halifax to refuel before continuing trip across to Europe.
