To Russia in Ballast

Catherine Knutsen sailed from anchorage this afternoon bound for Russia. The ship arrived May 4 and berthed at pier 25-26 for repairs. She has been at anchor since May 9. Because she occupied most of number one anchorage, most ships sailed in and out of the harbour to the west of George's Island, giving those on the Halifax side a close up view.

Built in 1992, she measures 77,389 gross tons and 141,700 deadweight. The ship is fitted with bow loading gear so that she can load from offshore buoys and floating pipelines. The ship is registered in Norway, but is managed by Canship Ugland of St. John's, NL and has Canadian crew.
