Algonova Towed into Port

Tanker AlgoNova was towed into port this afternoon By Atlantic Elm. She is bound for Woodside, but will probably be moved to the Nova Dock.

Damage is probably quite severe, if she was towed from Sydney to Halifax.

AlgoNova reported a fire on Jan 19, and requested assistance. She proceeded to Sydney NS with a tug escort.

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.
