Aussie Immigrant – Svitzer Wombi Arrives in Halifax.

The tug Svitzer Wombi made port today. Svitzer recently purchased 3 Chinese tugs in May 2014 for use in Australia, though word was one was sent north to be used in Point Cartier PQ at the Cargill grain Facility there.

After Purchase, The tug went through a work period in Singapore, and was then delivered to Panama, where the Dutch firm  TOS was responsible for crewing the delivery voyage to Halifax.

On her arrival today, the Aussie Name was very small, and the Letters Svitzer Cartier could be seen under the blue paint, Suggesting that will be her name. weld marks for Svitzer  Wombi could also bee seen under the paint.

She was built in 2006 by the San Lin Shipyard as Hai Gang 107 and was flagged in Shang Hai China. She is equipped with 2 x Voith-Schneider drives. I expect she will hang out at ECTUG until registered in Canada.
