Ocean Force has spent the past several days at anchor in the Basin. the ship first arrived in Halifax in August to fill in for the Nolhan Ava on the Saint Pierre run. With the return of the Nolhan Ava, the ship took to the basin after completing its last trip.
Nolhan Ava it now operating on a service between Halifax and Argentia, NL. its unclear what the change will mean for the Saint Pierre Service, As the ship is now operated by a Dartmouth based Subsidiary of the company that ran the Saint Pierre Service.
There was some thought that the Ocean Force would take over that route, though that is unclear at this point. Also muddying the waters is the fact that the Nolhan Ava was re-flagged to Canada in August 2018, and has been making regular calls in Argentia after stopping in Saint Pierre. It looks as though on this first run, the ship stopped at Saint Pierre after Argentia.
