Cabrera - bulk load

The Malta flag bulker Cabrera arrived Wednesday to load bulk cargo from the grain elevator. The ship had discharged a cargo of gypsum in Saint John, NB and came directly to Halifax. The new cargo is likely a wood pellet product.

Built in 2011 by Qidong Daoda Marine in Qidong, China, the ship ship measures 24,210 gt and 34,613 dwt and carries four cranes. It was one of the first of the Seahorse 35 design which has become a popular bulk carrier type. I could not read the capacity ratings on the cranes, but they appear to be a typical 35 tonne type rigged for 20 tonne grabs.
