Nordic Zenith Passes the Exam

The Suezmax tanker Nordic Zenith occupied number one anchorage for few hours this morning. The ship made a diversion on its way to Canaport off Saint John, NB, presumably to undergo Asian Gypsy Moth inspection.

The ship was built by Samsung, Geoje in 2011 and measures 81,509 gt, 158, 645 dwt.  It is operated by Scandic American Shipping Ltd for owners Nordic American Tankers Ltd.

With the assistance of three tugs, the ship weighed anchor and made for sea through large numbers of pleasure craft including swarms of PWCs. 

Due to its size and the nature of its cargo, the ship used two pilots and kept one tug as tethered escort until it reached the outer pilot station.
