MAERSK ELLIOT Harbour Moves.
Refined products tanker Maersk Elliot has spent a week moving back and forth between anchorages and the I.O.L. oildock.which augers the question about the various refined product tank capacity stil viable at IOL and indeed the longterm prospects for the facility on the East Coast given the storage at the Straight and at Saint John, etc. What about naval fuel requirements and other bunkering needs? Algoma now having to bring marine fuel from Quebec is indeed strange.Photos taken Jan 25 and 28th in Bedford Basin. Moved to IOL 29th and back to the Basin late afternoon of 30th.
