 Demolition on the Irving wharf is almost complete, with only the large concrete mooring points and a portion of the access pier remaining.

Night Work.

The port runs 24/7. Sometimes its worth staying up late to see whats going on.

Ocean Arctique with barges for the big lift

Due tonight is the tug Ocean Arctique. The tug is tandem towing two barges, abys and timberland to be used by American Bridge co. For the big lift.

The tug was finished at the Halifax shipyard, and the barge timberland was owned by the yard until it was sold in 2008. 

The tow has been slow, not making more then 6 knots, and only 2 for most of the day. The tug and tow are due to tie up at pier 9. As of midnight they had reached the pilot station

UPDATE: they did not come in last night. Now due to try again Noonish.

UPDATE: They picked up the pilot at noon, and  finally made Anchorage 1 by 2:30. here the tow was separated, and the barges moved to the Cherubini wharf. Above, Lady Shirleen and Belle D from RMI Marine are moving the Ocean Abys, Timberland is still in tow of Ocean Arctique
