today and tomorrow, the mid and stern superblocks are scheduled to be rolled out. The Middle is to be done first, and it already placed on the transporters. The Stern will follow.
The bow superblock sub assemblies were constructed in Woodside, and have been delivered to the yard to be assembled into the third superblock. Additional work will continue in the yard. It also appears that a Tower crane is being installed on Pier 8 to facilitate this work.

With the Arrival of the Largest Container ship todate, a tall ship at anchor, and A US Aircraft carrier all showing up in recent days, its easy to forget other actions still happen daily in the port.
(Above)YM Moderation Put in for the Alliance. The Car Carrier liberty tied up at autoport, and then Moved to Pier 31.
(Above) Acadian sits at anchor waiting to tie up at the Irving Oil wharf. (Below) Atlantic Pegasus departed imperial oil for Sea.
Golden Oak Fixed an issue at anchor, and then proceeded to Imperial Oil.
(Above) The herring Fleet is Still in town, with the morning Star Transiting. (below)The Vera D Arrived just ahead of the ZIM Antwerp, but got out of the way.
This morning brought the arrival of the ZIM Antwerp – the Largest container ship to call at the Port to date. At 10064 TEU, she beats the previous record by 700TEU. She also brought record crowds to watch her arrival – The Largest by a very very wide margin.
On Arrival, she rotated in the Approaches and backed in offering excellent views of her size. The Vera D entered the harbour just ahead of her, but proceeded north of Georges to stay out of the way, and tied up after ZIM Antwerp was backed into pier 41.
