Noranda Madeleine arrives with new Riser

The general cargo ship Noranda Madeleine arrived at pier 9 from France yesterday afternoon with a new Drilling Riser. The Foam Buoyancy modules are already laid out on the pier, and as the riser pipe is unloaded it is assembled.

The Noranda Madeleine is due to sail tonight, and presumably at that time the riser will be loaded onto the platform supply vessels and transported to the Stenna Icemax.

If the Noranda Madeleine Looks Familiar, Its because she was a regular caller to Halifax as the Jan Van Gent for Nirint.

 

UPDATE: Besides adding a current Photo, She appears to be in the process of naming back to Jan Van Gent. Her stern is still painted Noranda Madeleine, but the Bow is in the process of reverting back to Jan Van Gent. See Shipfax Yesterday for a photo under the new (old?!)name.

 

Photos of todays operations at pier 9 will follow.

Jumbo Shipping FairLift

Jumbo Shipping’s Heavy lift vessel FairLift arrived this morning at Pier 30. I suspect she is discharging cargo, as their was nothing obvious for her to pick up on the pier. (Though there were some Mammoet heavy transport chassis on the pier the other day.)

Jumbo Shipping is also a regular caller in Halifax, (Past Visits) however they have dropped off since CAT shut the EMD plant in London ONT, and locomotives are no longer exported.

Forward is Nirint Holandia, a regular caller in Halifax.
