Eidsvaag Sirius

The small bulker Eidsvaag Sirius arrived this evening on one of its rare visits to Halifax. The first time it was here, in June 2018, it came in to transfer registration from Norway to Canada. It has since called in many of the smaller ports in Atlantic  Canada going about is business of carrying aquaculture feed for its operators Skettering Canada Inc.

As I speculated back in 2018 its visits to Halifax would be rare, and as far as I can tell this is the first time it has been back. Its last port is reported as Little Bay, NL.

It is the successor to Eidsvaag Vinland which returned to Norway in 2018 and is now sailing as Superior.

Supplementary information is provided in previous posts, with the following addendum:

The ship's hull was built in Decin, Czech Republic, but construction was completed by the Peters Shipyard in Kampen, Germany.
