The bulker Polyneos
arrived at pier 28 yesterday for a top off load of grain.
Due to St.Lawrence River draft limitations ships of this size usually can't take a full load in ports such as Quebec City, so they come on to Halifax or Gulf of St.Lawrence ports to top up their cargo. Polyneos
, flying the flag of the Marshal Islands, but owned by Odysea Carriers SA of Athens, is a a large ship. Measuring 37,623 gross tons and a whopping 72,080 deadweight, it can load to a draft of over 13.4 meters (44.75 feet).
The ship was built in 1997 by Hitachi Shipbuilding at Maizuru, Japan and carried the name Juno Island
