It was reported in October that the Chenan would be going for scrap in January, following her sister Chengtu. However she is due in Auckland and spending a day at the container terminal for "Provisional move for Fergusson Wharf planning". I am wondering if Swire are going to add her to the coastal container trade due to the earthquakes and the shutting down of the rail and road infrastructure in the South Island. Anyone have an insight on this?Chenan
sailed from Newcastle direct to Lyttelton arriving 26 November berthing at Cashin Quay. She loaded a deck cargo of containers helping out the SOC
and sailed 27 November for Auckland. Arriving in the early hours of 30 November, she berthed at Fergusson and discharged, before moving to Bledisloe at 0730 to take up her normal schedule. (For last time as it turns out).
