Oceanex, Ice, and Bow Damage.

Oceanex, Ice, and Bow Damage.

Oceanex has recently been having a rough go of it in the ice.  The other week, Oceanex Connaigra was sporting large dents in her bulbous bow after encountering ice. The same fate appears to have occurred to Oceanex Sanderling, who is currently tied up at pier 36, with new plating being installed on her bow.

 

given the limited extent of the damage, my guess is the ships struck Growlers, basically “small” chunks of ice floating floting south. While much smaller then a an Iceberg, they clearly can do alot of damage.

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.
