The Bahamas flag tanker Alice moved from outer anchorage to Imperial Oil dock number 4 early this afternoon. The ship arrived off Halifax January 5 and was waiting for the berth to be vacated by Marianne Kirk. In terms of waiting time, this was not a long wait - some ships have to wait a week or more. North Contender is still waiting in Bedford Basin after arriving on the same day.
Owned by Gotland Rederi of Visby, Sweden, Alice is a very new ship, delivered in 2013 by Guangzhou International Shipyard in Guangzhou, China. It is a handy-sized chemical/product tanker of 24,600 grt, 39,316 dwt.
With the tug Atlantic Willow alongside, Alice waits in the north end of anchorage #1 for the the departure of Marinanne Kirk and a second tug before going alongside Imperial Oil dock #4.
