1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: 2 Neste oil tankers sold to Valero will operate on the St-Lawrence! on: March 27, 2014, 02:43:40 am
It will be very nice to see these vessels more often.
From the article the ships will be transporting "100% high quality North American lightcrude" whereas the environmentalist argument against reversing the Enbridge 9B pipeline is that it would be transporting bitumen from Alberta?
This seems to give the refinery in Levis an advantage over Irving in St. John, NB.  (Right now we have fairly regular shipments of gasoline from St. John coming to Montreal section 74.)  Hopefully it will result in savings at the gas pump and Quebecers and Albertans will have more in common because they will have the same fuel source.     
2  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Lagest ships in each category to reach the Port of Montreal ? on: July 30, 2013, 01:44:59 pm
A few years ago the arrival of the containership MSC Carouge was celebrated by the Port of Montreal as the largest containership to arrive in Montreal.  A press conference was held on the ship.  I believe this was because it was rated for 4850 TEUs.  Montreal, Toronto Express and OOCL Montreal are longer and have a higher gross tonnage, rated 4400 TEU.  These are the longest ships that come to Montreal, 294 M.  MSC Alyssa and Sandra have the highest DWT of containterships coming to Montreal and are rated for 4250 TEUs.

I heard from one of the crew members that the ship is rat infested and needs to be fumigated.  No one can stay on board.  Now the owner doesn't want to pay the two crew members at the end of their 30 day contracts so they are in some trouble.

Probably referring to M/T Maersk Erin, a former Brostrom ship which left Montreal on Monday morning.  Erin is an Irish name and Aaron is Hebrew but they are both pronounced the same.
