AOPS 3, the third Arctic Offshore Patrol vessel, the future HMCS Max Bernays, left Irving Shipbuilding Inc's Halifax Shipyard for the first time today, July 22, for sea trials. Initially it went to Bedford Basin for compass swing and other adjustments, then headed for sea.
As it approached the MacKay bridge, the tug Atlantic Fir peeled off and returned to base, and the fog had dissipated enough for a clear view.The tug Atlantic Willow followed, in case it was needed, but with a slack line.
The extended sea trials may take several days.
