The General Cargo Ship Enna arrived a few weeks ago and rafted up alongside Siem Dorado at pier 9. Enna was carrying a load of cable handling equipment which will be installed on board the Siem Dorado.
Siem Dorado is tied up at Pier 9. the Offshore construction vessel is at the cable terminal, and looks to be outfitting for a cable job. You can see the stern has added cable handling equipment.
There is no active coasting trade application open, so the job is not likely in Canadian Waters.
Siem is the Parent of Dartmouth based Secunda Marine.
Thorco Liva returned to pier 9 today to load cable tanks. Thorco vessels are somewhat regular callers to Pier 9 to have cable tanks loaded.
CCGS Alfred Needler (above) and IT Intrepid (below) both took to pier 9 for the holidays.

Since arriving in May, IT Telecoms new cable ship IT Integrity has been undergoing fitout at Pier 9. The ship now looks to have cable handling gear installed, and the rear deck is considerably more cluttered then when the ship first arrived.
International Telecoms new Vessel IT Integrity arrived at pier 9 over the weekend. the cable ship is a Converted Offshore Supply Vessel, and its acquisition was announced in the beginning of April. the ship, compared to the rendering looks to be missing some equipment, so its likely going to spend some time alongside getting fitted out.
Markab returned to pier 9 this morning. it was last here Feb 8., before sailing to Bridgetown Barbados. Built in Norway in 1976, the ship now is operated by Furgo, and was likely conducting a subsea survey.
the ship is the Rolls Royce UT75L design Platform Supply vessel. It was acquired from Gulfmark and was last reported in Stavinger Norway.
From the renderings above, it looks as though the ship will be modified to perform cable handling work.I have been told that the ship has spent the last month in dry dock, with the Bulk tanks below deck being replaced with a cable tank.
IT Telecom operates from the Maritime Cable Base at Pier 9. IT Telecom currently operates IT Intrepid . IT Interceptor was apparently chartered, and since the end of 2014 has been working as the Italian Cable ship Antonio Meucci – though her class certificates were revoked in January as a survey was not completed – likely due to Corona Virus.
