The Container Ship Malleco fills in today slot on The Alliances EC5 service. Shes Rated at 6589TEU.
Built in 2009, The Ship is named for a Chilean Province.
In a nice change, the Bilbao bridge tied up the the west end of Fairview Cove backwards. Ships usually tie up front to sea, but Bilbao Bridge likely requires some sort of work to be done necessitating the backwards docking.
The Ship is Running for the Alliance’s AL6 Route. She is scheduled to sail tonight.
I wasen’t able to get out to see her arrive, but USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) arrived this morning. She tied up at NB, and took bunkers from the Algoma Dartmouth.
so I am unsure which vessel it is. It appears to be an USS Arleigh Burke is the first Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer. She was commissioned in 1991, and is home-ported in Norfolk. She is Scheduled to Sail this afternoon around 3pm
Updates will be posted as they become known at http://blog.halifaxshippingnews.ca/2017/05/visit-today-of-us-navy-vessel.html

The Alliance made its first call of the AL6 Service today with the Arrival of the K-Line Ship Brevik Bridge to Fairview Cove. The AL 6 is a new service for the Alliance, and for Halifax.

The routing is Livorno – La Spezia – Genoa – Fos – Barcelona – Valencia – Salerno – Halifax – New York – Norfolk – Savannah – Salerno – Valencia – Livorno
