Maersk Niteroi – 2 service calls in one stop

Maersk Niteroi made an appearance on the Maersk weekly Call on Sunday

The ship Arrived as the final Stop of  the Montreal Mediterranean Express – the service began in July, but is quietly ending, whit no more trips being scheduled after December. The ship sailed for Bremerhaven, and will make stops in Antwerp and Rotterdam, making the return trip from Montreal as the Eastbound CAE service (With Halifax as the second call on that route). after this trip,  Maersk Niteroi will go into northern European service.

Maersk appears to be cycling some ships around, so  schedule slots seem to be filled by random vessels for a trip or two. Another new vessel will be calling next week – but more on that next week.

Maersk Niteroi was built in 2009, and is rated at 2592 TEU.

 

APL Detroit and a Broken Crane.

APL Detroit arrived this morning, and took up Pier 42. Maersk Penang took P41. if you look closely, you will notice on of the cranes over APL Detroit has its boom up –  Presumably out of service for some reason.

As a result, the last remaining pananmax crane, which usually services pier 36, has been swun around to work the Maersk Penang at 41. Penang being a Panamax ship, she fits comfortably under the crane.

In, Out, and staying awhile.

(Above) Arsos backed into pier 42 just after noon. Shes running on the New ZIM Canada Florida Express service to Jamaica. Heading out from Autoport was Taurus Leader (below). Shes bound for New York.

Seamax Stamford (Above) is at Pier 41, calling on the Maersk line Med/Montreal express(MMX) service . The Bomar Rebecca (below) is hanging out at Pier 26. She was offloaded earlier this week, and went to pier 26, presumably to wait out Hurricane Florence. She sails for tropical shipping, which canceled their sailing this week.

Familiar Scrappings

8542530692_28e23fa2c8_o Maersk Patras was a regular caller in Halifax on the weekly Maersk call, But had been replaced by Em Kay in 2014. On November 2, she suffered an engine room fire 90 miles ESE of Las Palmas. she lost all power, was towed to port, and offloaded. Given the ships age, She is likely bound for the scrappers given the market for small container ships and the damaged engine room.

Atlantic Erie is also bound for Turkish scrappers. She ran aground in January 2015 leaving port in the Magdalen islands with a salt cargo. She was refloated, and surveyed. With extensive hull damage, she hasn’t sailed since. Atlantic Erie was a regular caller in Halifax over the years, and underwent a work period in 2009 at Halifax shipyards.
