Irving Oil completed the unloading of the tanker Elka Glory and the ship sailed for Amsterdam this afternoon.
Operated by European Product Carriers Ltd, the 27,612 grt, 44,598 dwt ship has called here previously. It was built by Brodosplit in Split, Croatia in 2003.
While it was outbound the bulker Rila was inbound from Belledune, NB in ballast.
The ship tied up at pier 28, likely for bunkers.
Later in the afternoon the autocarrier Green Bay moved from Autoport to pier 31 to unload some wheeled machinery.
The ship was built in 20007 by Toyohashi SB as Grand Winner, but renamed on delivery. With a capacity of 6400 CEU, its tonnages are registered as 59,250 grt, 18,312 dwt. It is one of four US flag car carriers operated by Waterman (part of Seacor). Because it was not built in the US it does not qualify for domestic trade under the Jones Act, however it does receive preference for US government cargoes including military.
