Canadian Armed Forces members unload military vehicles from Glovis Century in Setubal, Portugal as part of TRIDENT JUNCTURE 2015 and JOINTEX15, 7 October 2015. The vehicles were loaded in Montreal, and the ship left
part of its cargo on pier 9 so it had enough draft to make the run to Montreal. VIDEO
In what I believe is a first, a Pure Car/Truck Carrier has tied up at pier 9. The Glovis Century arrived, rotated 180 degrees and tied up. She is likely unloading project cargo or heavy equipment.
Autoport is occupied as is pier 29/30 where car carriers normally tie up.
UPDATE: Looks like she was unloading Cars. No word on how they are moving off the pier – The On dock rail is blocked by parked cars, so they are either being trucked or Driven off.
She sailed Sunday Night.
Update 09/28: She returned to pier 9 this morning to re-load the cars she left behind.
Yesterday brought the Car Carrier Suzuka Express. Operated by Vroon of the Netherlands, she was built in 2010 in Japan. Shes rated at just over 3900 cars, on 10 decks.
Torm Ragnhild also arrived yesterday. She anchored for Gypsy moth inspection, then moved to Imperial Oil to offload.
The pure car truck carrier sunlight ace dropped the anchor at the inner anchorage today. Ot is Odd she did not go directly to autoport as there is currently nothing else tied up there.
UPDATE: CFIA Gypsy Moth Inspection. She moved to Autoport late in the afternoon.
