UBC Santos

 The bulk carrier UBC Santos arrived late last evening March 21 and tied up at Pier 28.This morning it began loading wood pellets from storage in Halifax Grain Elevators silos.

Spouts from the loading gallery have been positioned in three of the ship's five holds.

The UBC Santos operates under the United Bulk Carriers banner, a Philadelphia based operator of fifteen bulkers, but part of the larger Hartmann Group of Leer, Germany, which counts 150 ships of all types.

 The ship was built in 2008 by Saiki Jukogyo in Saiki, Japan. It is a 19,748 gt, 31,569 dwt ship with four 30 tonne SWL cranes and grabs ranging in size from 8 cubic meters to 12 cubic meters. The ship is also equipped with cement hatches, and has box shaped holds.

As with many bulk carriers it is not equipped with a bow thruster, nor is it fitted for the St.Lawrence Seaway.
