More Big Ships

 There was another 10,000 TEU ship at PSA Halifax today, following on after yesterday's 10,000 TEU ship. As I have suggested previously, the novelty will soon wear off as the 10,000 TEU benchmark becomes commonplace.

Yesterday's caller was CMA CGM Chennai, a ship that has called here several times before, and is the first 10,000 TEU ship to be considered a "regular":

Today's arrival is APL Gwangyang for its first visit. Built in 2012 by Hyundai, Ulsan, it is a 113,735 gt, 123,159 dwt ship with a capacity of 10,700 TEU (including 700 reefers.) It berthed at Pier 41.

With the re-opening of the breakwater walkway it is possible to get a close up look at the ship, but  to get an overall view is difficult  except from the Dartmouth side of the harbour. 

    There was still lots of room at PSA Halifax, with the newly extended pier. so the ZIM feeder Tampa Trader looked very small at pier 42. [See  ]
