Tarang on the Move

The bulk carrier Tarang arrived in Halifax on February 20, but it was too dark for a photo. She tied up at pier 25-26 and sat pretty much idle, with hatches open. Last night she moved around to pier 27 and this morning a big shore side truck crane was working in her after hold (No.7).
The ship is no spring chicken- built in 1989 she measures 35,549 gross tons, and was named Malaya briefly, becoming Havbor shortly thereafter, then in 1995 becoming Ispat Tarang. She became Tarang in 2005.
She is operated by Anglo-Eastern Ship Management and was headed for Sept-Iles to load 75,000 tonnes of iron ore. She sailed directly from Poland and north of the Orkneys, in ballast, so it is likely she sustained some damage on the crossing. She was due in Sept-Iles on February 23.
