Atlantic Fir in Halifax

Work continues at Halifax Shipyard while plans are made to raise the Scotiadock II. The tug Atlantic Fir arrived yesterday from its normal base on the Strait of Canso, towing the barge Atlantic Shark. It remained in port today, and was called out this evening to undock fleet mate Atlantic Elm which has been in the graving dock at Halifax Shipyard.
Here she waits while the dock is filled. She is bow in alongside the graving dock gate. Atlantic Fir was built in 2005 and is rated at 5,050 bhp. It is the third tug of that name in the fleet. The previous two were sold overseas.
In the background is the former HMCS Fraser laid up at Jetty Lima.
