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.

Jan Van Gent for Nirint

Nirint Shipping has been adding new ships to its halifax service as of late.
Jan Van Gent was built by Damen shipyards Yichang China  in 2009. She is a Dry cargo multi-purpose container vessel mening she can carry 686 TEU of continers or a combination of conatiners and 609.990 cbft of bulk product in 2 holds.

She sails for Holand today.

Nirint Spirit

A new Ship for Nirint? Nope, just a new name. Nirint Spirit Arrived for the first time since Aug 2010 when she was known as Nirint Pride. Its an interesting time for a renaming, since she was involved in a collision damaging her bow in 2009. (See Previous)

under her old Name:
