From The Ship Watcher:
“HALIFAX, NS – Algoma Tankers newest fleet member arrived in North America early Monday after traveling from Turkey where it was recently completed.
“The vessel arrived at the Port of Halifax today after a fairly uneventful winter crossing,” said Catherine Calvert of Algoma Tankers via email today. “She of course experienced some heavy weather (throughout the trip).”
Algocanada is scheduled to come into service once some final items are attended to in Halifax. The vessel will then begin work in the Atlantic East Coast and Great Lakes regions.
No formal dedication ceremony is planned at this time.”
