Svitzer tug Pointe aux Basques arrived in Halifax today. This was a bit of a surprise, as the port website was listing the arrival of fleet mate Pointe Sept Iles .
Mac at Tugfax reports these tugs will now be stationed in Halifax, since thier contract at Sept-Iles, QC with Iron Ore Company of Canada expired. The two Twins have been stationed in Sept-Ills since they were built in 1972.
Halifax is an odd location, since Svitzer has a joint operation with Atlantic towing, With Svitzer handling tug duties in Port Hawksbery and Atlantic towing in Halifax.
It will be good to see tugs at Ectug Again. here is a post from 2009 about Ectugs former residents
Stay tuned for More.
