What's In Port

 It was a quiet November 11 in the port, with arrivals and departures mostly happening in the dark. Irving Oil had the East Coast arriving from Boston last night and due to sail this evening.

As one of Irving Oil's Canadian flag tankers it is more often seen in Canadian ports, but it is also well known in several northeastern US ports.

The 23,552 gt, 37,515 dwt ship was built in 2005 by Hyundai, Mipo and is on long term charter from Vroon / Iver .

Imperial Oil also had a tanker alongside. Hafnia Lise is a 29,658 gt, 49,876 dwt vessel, built in 2016 by Guangzhou International. It is notable for having enclosed bridge wings.

Its last port was Port Neches, TX, situated between Port Arthur and Beaumont on Sabine Lake.

The Atlantic Sail arrived in the late afternoon for Fairview Cove.

PSA Halifax had the Edison alongside all day. It arrived in the early morning and is not due to sail before midnight. It is the first time the ship has called in Halifax, and regrettably photos were awkward to say the least.

Owned by Zodiac Maritime Ltd it is operating on the Ocean Alliance, CMA CGM, COSCO, Evergreen, OOCL service, better known as the Columbus Loop. It is a 142,052 gt, 141,448 dwt ship with a capacity of 13,092 TEU including 1,000 reefers. It was built in 2011 by Hyundai Samho as Maersk Edison. On completion of the Maersk charter it became Edison in 2017.

As with many of the larger container ships, it has a split superstructure with accommodation and bridge forward and engine toward to the stern.

Remembrance Day obervances were held in severla locations, with HMCS Kingston standing by off the Navy Memorial at Point Pleasant.
