Mont Blanc


The BBC Mont Blanc arrived today with a deck load of parts of something – likely more of the Cement Plant Being Constructed in Quebec. She tied up at pier 30 just before 1800, forward of the Asian Moon.

Mont Blanc is of course a problematic name for a vessel in Halifax. Recall it was the Mont Blanc colliding with the Imo in the narrows that caused the Halifax explosion. The BBC Mont Blanc is 125m in length vs the SS Mont Blanc 98m length.

Bahri Jazan drags anchor

  
Reports are that the Bahri Jazan was dragging anchor in the basin and had to reset.  The ais tracks seem to show a normal anchor swing but then it appears to move north.

  
The vessel presumably pulled her anchor, repositioned and re-set it.

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.
