The Algerain ship Imedghassen finally sailed this evening after being under repair since it arrived January 9, 2021: http://shipfax.blogspot.com/2021/01/new-for-melfi-imedghassen.html
Initially Imedghassen tied up at Pier 34, but on February 24 it was moved by tugs to Pier 9C where it has remained until today.
The ship came to Halifax to take up a charter with Melfi Marine, which runs a container and general cargo service from Italy, Spain and Portugal to Cuba, calling in Halifax westbound. However due to a defect in its air compressor system, which prevented stopping and reversing the main engine, the ship was unable to take up the charter. X-press Irazu took its place, joining Macao Strait. The Melfi ships usually call in Halifax twice a month. However the next call will not be until April 30 as Macao Strait will bypass on its next voyage
