CSL Spirit For Fuel

Last here in 2011, CSL Spirit has been operating as a shuttle bulker to load iron ore onto larger bulkers for export. As large bulkers are 2 large to tie up at the pier, CSL Spirit is loaded, then offloads into the larger vessel anchored off shore.

Several trips are required to fill one vessel.

I expect once she is done bunkering, she will sail back to Sept-Ills. CSL Spirit also severed national gypsum on numerous occasions.

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.
