Aeneas - not a particularly glorious moment

It was a dull and windy Remembrance Day in Halifax. Despite being a day off work for many Nova Scotians, Halterm was working two ships Zim Constanza and Aeneas. The latter is also working for ZIM and has recently changed names.

A wide angle view of Aeneas at pier 42, with the Canadian Border Services Agency vehicles scanning containers at the end of the pier.

It was also dark late and early discouraging any real photography, so this one will have to do for Aeneas.
Shanghai Jiangnan Changxing Heavy Industries Co Ltd completed the ship in 2010 for Reederei Hamburger Lloyd as RHL Felicitas. Earlier this year the ship was acquired by the quaintly named Glorious Moment Ltd and placed under the Hong Kong flag. Anglo-Eastern Ship Management operates the ship while ZIM employs the ship. It measures 54,182 grt, 63,059 dwt with a capacity of 5089 TEU.
