The multi-purpose general cargo ship BBC Kimberley made the briefest of appearances in Halifax today. Docking at Fairview Cove shortly after 1300 it was due to sail at 1400.
That would only leave it time to open its hatches, make one lift, seal up the hatches again and depart. If it needed its own cranes to work the cargo, it was certainly capable. Each crane has a 250 tonne capacity, but they can work together to lift 500 tonnes.
The ship was built in 2009 and measures 8,750 grt, 10,340 dwt. It is operated by Jungerhaus-Heavy-Lift-Fleet, in the BBC Chartering pool.
