Departures follow up.

After yesterday's post the predicted storm passed though over night with high winds and storm surge. Pilotage operations were suspended at some point during the night and not resumed until this morning (January 14). Some arrival and departure times changed as a result.

Among the delayed departures were:

JY Lake resumed its voyage from Romeville, LA to Rotterdam. It anchored in Halifax January 12 probably for some technical adjustments. The 43,968 gt, 81,146 dwt ship was built in 2019 by Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangijn, China. It appears to be fully loaded with grain.

The unusual ConRo ship Ramhan sailed from Autoport. This is the second trip to Halifax recently for this ship. The last was on November 12, 2023 and like the last time the ship was carrying no containers. At one point it was scheduled to move to Pier 9C, but remained at Autoport. This time the ship is eastbound from Davisville RI, bound for Gibraltar, Since its previous call here, when it was westbound, the ship went to Altamira, Mexico, Abu Qir, Egypt, Civitavecchia, Italy and Algeciras anchorage (Gibraltar) then directly to Davisville.

As noted in my November post ConRo ships are rare these days, with Grimaldi Lines and Atlantic Container Lines (owned by Grimaldi) among the few companies operating this type of ship. The ship's previous owners Ignazio Messina + Cia SpA work shorter hauls in the Mediterranean and combine containers and various RoRo cargoes.

The last departure of note was the Pacific Trader which was also covered in yesterday's post.

After completing its cargo work at PSA Fairview Cove yesterday afternoon, it made its way to anchor in Bedford Basin, waiting out the rough weather overnight. It is now en route to Kingston, Jamaica.
