The Marshall Islands flagged Great Eastern arrived Friday and tied up at Imperial Oil #4 dock.
Great Eastern at Imperial Oil dock #4.
Then this afternoon the Canadian flagged East Coast arrived for the second time in a week. The ship arrived last Saturday too, but that time docked at Ultramar. I believe it unloaded Ultramar product, picked up in Lévis, QC on the return leg of a trip when it delivered Irving product to St.Lawrence River ports.
East Coast came in west of George's Island.
This is the first time I have had a close up look at the exhaust gas scrubber system, installed abaft the original funnel. Certainly an unattractive addition, but a necessary one to comply with emission regulations in Canada and the US.
The white structure attached to the aft side of the funnel houses the exhaust gas scrubber.
The Irving tankers each carry the ship's initial on the superstructure.
Tugs turn the ship for its approach to the Woodside pier.
East Coast ex Nor'Easter (i) will be sailing early tomorrow morning, after pumping off a part load. See last week's post on Nor'Easter (ii).
