Arctic Floounder bunkers

The tanker Arctic Flounder arrived early this morning to take bunkers. By about 0800 hrs, the operation was completed and the bunkering tanker Algoma Dartmouth got away to return to pier 34.

The Arctic Flounder was launched as  W-O Salute by the Brodosplit shipyard in Split, Croatia in 2009, but took its current name on delivery to companies associated with Prime Marine Corp, operators of 27 tankers (many named for more glamorous fish). Although it is a product tanker, it is much larger than the Mid-Range tankers of 50,000 dwt that we normally see. Arctic Flounder ,measures 42,827 grt, 74,925 dwt and is considered to be Long Range 1 type.(LR1). Long Range 2 (LR2) product tankers are large than 100,000 dwt.
