British Serenity - headed south

British Petroleum's British Serenity made a bunker call in Halifax today. Bound from Montreal, the ship also disembarked its ice adviser.
Acting pilot boat Capt. A.G.Soppitt heads for shore with the harbor pilot and ice adviser shortly after British Destiny brought up at anchor.
The ship is a product of Hyundai Mipo, Ulsan, South Korea at 29,214 grt, 47,210 dwt, built in 2005. A far cry from the elegant British Petroleum tankers of yore, it does have some non-standard features compared to other ships from the same yard. The most noticeable is the full width enclosed covered bridge structure wings.
On completion of bunkering from Algoma Dartmouth , the ship wasted no time in coming about and heading for sea. Its next port is Guyanilla, Puerto Rico.
