Svitzer Tugs back at ECTug

Svitzer tug Pointe aux Basques arrived in Halifax today. This was a bit of a surprise, as the port website was listing the arrival of fleet mate Pointe Sept Iles .

Mac at Tugfax reports these tugs will now be stationed in Halifax, since thier contract at Sept-Iles, QC with Iron Ore Company of Canada expired. The two Twins have been stationed in Sept-Ills  since they were built in 1972.

Halifax is an odd location, since Svitzer has a joint operation with Atlantic towing, With Svitzer handling tug duties in Port Hawksbery and  Atlantic towing in Halifax.

It will be good to see tugs at Ectug Again. here is a post from 2009 about Ectugs former residents

Stay tuned for More.
