Atlantic Pegasus - this one is red

The accumulation of tankers in Bedford Basin remains relatively steady as new ones arrive and old ones move on. Early this morning Havelstern (dark blue) sailed, Perseus N (black) moved to Nova Scotia Power and this evening Maersk Katalin *(light blue) moved back to Imperial Oil to complete discharging. And to add to the variety this morning Atlantic Pegasus (red) arrived at anchor.

Built in 2010 by Hyundai Mipo in Ulsan, South Korea, this ship is another of the endless array of more or less standard product tankers. At 29,107 grt, 46,838 dwt, she is just under the 50,000 dwt figure which is considered the rough maximum for "handy size". Flying the Hong Kong/ China flag, the ship is operated by Univan Ship Management of Hong Kong.

*As Maersk Katalin drew near Imperial Oil about 2230 hrs, the wind began to pick up again as a nother storm started up. The move was aborted and the ship returned to anchor in Bedford Basin. [See also today's Tugfax for another reference to bMaersk Katalin.]

Seapride, Maersk Katalin, Perseus N, in the Basin early this morning.
