Fairlift Delivers to Stena Icemax

_MG_6662The Heavy lift vessel Fairlift made a quick stop at pier 31 today. She reportedly delivered something to the Stenna Icemax, now located off the Shelburne Basin. Jumbo Shipping does offer subsea installation as one of their services, so its possible the ship delivered something to the seabed, rather then to the ship itself.

 

In other Icemax news, the CNSOPB gave shell permission to start drilling again.
