Interlink Levity at anchor

The Bulker Interlink Levity arrived yesterday and spent today at anchor for hull cleaning and Bunkers. she is scheduled to sail early afternoon tomorrow. She was built in 2014, and arrived loaded from Fairless Hills, a suburb of Philadephia, likely carrying coal into the lakes, for steel making.


The bulker RADCLIFFE R. LATIMER spent a few days tied up at Pier 25/26 before moving to National Gypsum Mid afternoon. built in 1978 as Algobay, she also was chartered to CSL from 94-97 as Atlantic Trader. She was rebuilt in China in 2008/09 and took her current name in 2012.

CSL Frontier sails from National Gypsum

CSL Frontier is no stranger to Nova Scotia waters. She was built as the Gypsum Centennial, specifically to trade out of the gypsum dock at Hantsport on the bay of fundy. As a result, she is built to a shallower draft, and is wider then most bulk carriers of her size. Painted Black, and Flagged in Barbados, she trades for CSL’s international arm.

Todays voyage was bound for Georgia.

Ferbec for CSL

the CSL Geared bulk Carrier Ferbec made her way to pier 9 this evening. She is here for a short changeover – she was charted in South America over the winter and will be returning to Canadian Flag and Crew before returning to work in Quebec.

Her last port was in Venezuela.

KSL Seville at anchor

The laden bulk carrier KSL Seville arrived last night from Sept-Iles Quebec. She has not taken bunkers, and has no posted departure time, so the reason for her stop in Halifax is unknown.

Loaded with iron ore, she entered port with 2 tugs due to her deep draft.

Familiar Scrappings

8542530692_28e23fa2c8_o Maersk Patras was a regular caller in Halifax on the weekly Maersk call, But had been replaced by Em Kay in 2014. On November 2, she suffered an engine room fire 90 miles ESE of Las Palmas. she lost all power, was towed to port, and offloaded. Given the ships age, She is likely bound for the scrappers given the market for small container ships and the damaged engine room.


Atlantic Erie is also bound for Turkish scrappers. She ran aground in January 2015 leaving port in the Magdalen islands with a salt cargo. She was refloated, and surveyed. With extensive hull damage, she hasn’t sailed since. Atlantic Erie was a regular caller in Halifax over the years, and underwent a work period in 2009 at Halifax shipyards.
