Containers: big and twice as big

ONE Magnificence made another visit to Cerescorp, Fairview Cove. The former MOL Magnificence made its debut in Halifax in April 2020 as the first ship to call with the Ocean Network Express (ONE)  magenta hull paint.

 When ONE came up with the magenta hull colour I wondered how it would wear after months of nudging by tugs. The ship looks remarkably fresh however, and if there are touch ups they don;t stand out.

The 6724 TEU ship was built by Mitsubishi, Kobe in 2010.

At the other end of the harbour at PSA Halifax, a first time caller was the 12,562 TEU (including 1,000 reefers) CMA CGM Alaska. At 140,259 gt, 146,114 dwt it is nearly twice the size.

Painted in a serviceable deep blue, the ship was built by Samsung, Koje in 2011.
