The container ship CMA CGM l'Etoile LBR x E.R. Camargue -05, 26836/05, 2556 TEU made a surprisingly short stay at Halterm this afternoon. The ship was in for no more than half an hour, leaving at 4 pm.

This ship is not on CMA CGM's regular service to Halifax, so why did it call? Usually calls this short are for a medical emergency, where a crew member cannot be airlifted from the ship and must be landed. I have no furthter info on this, but here are some pictures of the unique caller to Halifax.
