Saturday was the first workday of the new year, and a busy day at Pier 41/42 ZIM Savannah spent the Day at 41, with Maersk Penang tieing up just after 7am. When she sailed, around 2pm, Her spot was Taken by CMA-CGM Bianca who worked well into the night. (Bottom: CMA-CGM Bianca backing into pier 42. (Provided Photo))
Fairview Cove was also busy, with Allise P and Rio Blackwater Occupying the East and West Births Respectively.
Due today is the HH Emilia – On arrival, she is set to discharge all her containers due to engine troubles. presumably this will be picked up by the next Maersk vessel.
The ship is part of the Vespucci Service, Asia and the US East Coast via Panama. The port rotation is Qindao – Ningbo – Shanghai -(Panama)- Cartagena – Savannah – Charleston – Norfolk – New York – Norfolk – Charleston – Savannah – Qingdao, so the ship came north to offload.
This is the second time a CMA-CGM Ship has failed in Halifax – The Stadt Cadiz spent time at Pier 9B in May sorting out engine troubles. She also unloaded all her cans.
If the Ship looks Familer, she is the Ex Dresden Express – sold by Hapag Llyod earlier this year. – Hapag-Llyod is disposing of her class – either selling or scrapping the vessels.
Correction: I Originally posted that the ship was filling CMA-CGM’s slot on the weekly Maersk Service. this was incorrect, as now noted above.
The Container ship Northern Debonair Worked fairview cove yesterday, then proceeded to anchor in the Basin over night. Filling in for ACL, She is bound for Liverpool, and either has an issue, or is waiting out weather.
Balchen, a bulker scheduled to load at National Gypsum arrived and anchored in the basin on Arrival this morning.
The Car Carrier TOREADOR took a tug to help stay alongside this morning at Autoport.
