Athabaskan to be Scrapped

Athabaskan to be Scraped

The federal government issued a tender to “dispose of, through Ship Breaking, the former HMCS ATHABASKAN”

This means she is to be scrapped, rather then preserved as a museum ship. You can read the Tender at https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/tender-notice/PW-ERD-003-26503

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.
