Acadia Desgagnes comes back to Canada

The Acadia Desgagnes returned to Halifax for reflagging to Canada. Over the summer, the ship works out of Quebec to resupply arctic communities. it then finds work on the international market in winter and is reflagged in Barbados with an international Crew.

She stopped in Halifax for the same reason since she was acquired in 2017. I missed her last year, but caught her in 2019 and 2018

Singelgracht Towed in.

Singelgracht was towed into port this Evening by Siem Commander, and tied up at Pier 9. Siem Commander sailed early this morning to rendezvous with the ship which was sailing from Zeebruges, Belgium for Philadelphia. It looks to have gotten into trouble off the Nova Scotia Coast.

Siem Commander had be laid up at COVE. You can see the tow line tailing behind in the photo Below.

UPDATE: Singelgracht at Pier 9 earlier today (jan 24th). There was no activity noted around the ship.

CSL Tarantau at Pier 9

CSL Tarantau arrived at Pier 9 today for some work. A crane and an assortment of vehicles was noticed by the accommodation block, and the self unloading arm is swung out of the way. The ship is not appearing on AIS, suggesting it is partially powered down.

CSL Tarantau was is a Panamax Trilium Class vessel, built as Balto for Klaveness to operate in the CSL America’s International pool. in 2015, Klaveness sold its ships to pool Partners CSL and Algoma.

The Horizon Highway Sailed from Southampton on the 9th, and looks to have lost power on the 15th, and drifted before regaining power, or being taken under town by another vessel on the 16th. It was suggested that the main engine was vapor locked.

the red area is the drift.

the Siem Commander sailed from Halifax the morning of the 19th.

This is yet another case of Laid up Secunda vessels providing emergency assistance. Venture Sea was recently dispatched to tow the Golden Opal, a bulk carrier that became disabled in the Davis Straight after departing the Baffinland mine in Mile inlet bound for Immingham, England. Both those ships are now in Nuuk Greenland.
