Glovis Century ties up at pier 9

In what I believe is a first, a Pure Car/Truck Carrier has tied up at pier 9. The Glovis Century arrived, rotated 180 degrees and tied up. She is likely unloading project cargo or heavy equipment. 

Autoport is occupied as is pier 29/30 where car carriers normally tie up.

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.
