The General Cargo Vessel Qamutik arrived this morning from Antwerp. She is Owned and Operated by Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping, a Nunavut Shipping Company that operates 4 vessels for Arctic Supply. A Qamutik is a sled adapted for use in arctic sea ice conditions, So its appropriate that this vessel meets Ice Class A1.
At 114m, she is typical of the general cargo vessels that trade in Halifax. She was built in 1994 in the Netherlands, And recently was dry-docked there, and is now on her return voyage. Her arctic journey will begin in Valleyfield PQ on June 25th.
