A New Canadian

this post is a bit late..
Algoma Hansa tied up at pier 34 in Late July. As the sole foreign flagged tanker in the Algoma fleet, she was purchased with her sister vessel who would become Algosea.

Algoma Hansa operated in an international pool of tankers, and was modified for seaway service during her 2013 routine drydocking. She was Canadian registered on July 31.

I caught her this past friday, performing a fire drill.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
