Danhil bunkering

The bulker Danhil bunkered in Halifax today en route to Port Cartier for a load of iron ore.

As Danhil comes to anchor the agent's launch Captain Jim (see Tugfax) stands by until the pilot disembarks and the bunkering tanker comes alongside.

Danhil has just about completed bunkering from Algoma Dartmouth.

Built in 2012 by Sungdong Shipbuilding + Marine Engineering of Tongyoung, South Korea, Danhil flies the Liberian flag, and is operated by Marlow Navigation Co Ltd of Limassol, Cyprus.[ Marlow was the narrator in several wonderful Joseph Conrad stories including Lord Jim, Youth and Heart of Darkness.]

At 44,336 grt and 81,354 dwt, with dimensions of 229m loa x 32m breadth x 11.9 draft, the ship is a Panamax size (which is governed by a maximum breadth of just over 32m) but is also a Kamsarmax. The port of Kamsar, Guinea, a major bauxite port is restricted to ships of no more than 229m length overall.
