The General Cargo Ship Jana arrived earlier this week with a load of rail for CN. Typical of the type of the smaller vessels that call in Halifax, she is 132m in Length, and can carry Break bulk and container cargos. Equipped with two 40ton cranes, she only needs a pier to tie up to.
breakbulk cargos are a growth area for the port and are the category of products that are not pourable
into a bulker, or easily containerized. These are things like machinery, Rails, wind turbines, locomotives etc.
Jana was built in 2002 and is operated by Intersee.
