Multiple Woodward’s

Today seemed to be a day of Doubles, with Maersk having two vessels in, and the Woodward Group of Newfoundland having Two tankers in Port as well. The Tanker Alsterstern departed the Ultramar Dock in Eastern Passage with a load of Diesel fuel for Labrador, and the Tanker Tuvaq Arrive for Bunkers. Alsterstern departed at 1600, and Tuvaq picked up her pilot at 1700.

Woodward vessels are very common in St John’s Newfoundland, but rarely stop in Halifax.
