The Latvian Shipping Company of Riga, Latvia is not unheard of in Halifax - its cargo ships do stop for bunkers from time to time, but their tankers are rarer sights.
Yesterday's arrival of the fine looking product tanker Jurkalne is one of those.
Built in 2006, and measuring 30,641 gross tons, and 52,622 deadweight tonnes, the ship is a product of the 3 Maj yard in Rijeka, Croatia. As with many tankers these days it is registered in the Marshall Islands.
The ship is due to sail this evening.
