The Halifax Explosion was a maritime disaster in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, on the morning of 6 December 1917. SS Mont-Blanc, a French cargo ship laden with high explosives, collided with the Norwegian vessel SS Imo in the Narrows, a strait connecting the upper Halifax Harbour to Bedford Basin. A fire on board the French ship ignited her cargo, causing a large explosion that devastated the Richmond district of Halifax. Approximately 2,000 people were killed by blast, debris, fires and collapsed buildings, and an estimated 9,000 others were injured. Having a bad day? I bet we have worse ones for you.

La nave ATLANTIC STAR, della compagnia Atlantic Container Lines (gruppo Grimaldi) nel suo viaggio inaugurale che l'ha portata da Liverpool (Inghilterra) al Fairview Cove Container Terminal di Halifax (Stati Uniti) mentre passa sotto il ponte Murray MacKay Bridge aiutata nella manovra di rimorchiatori ATLANTIC SALICE e ATLANTIC ROVERE. La "Atlantic Star" è la più grande e la più moderna unità ro-ro contenitori oggi al mondo. Così come le sue gemelle (in servizio entro la prossima estate) ha una capacità di 3.800 teu, ben 28.900 metri quadrati di spazio dedicato al ro-ro. E' in grado di trasportatre 1.307 auto. Oltre che per le sue dimensioni la nuova unità Acl si caratterizza per le sue prestazioni energetiche che ne fanno una nave "green", ad alta compatibilità ambientale. E' più grande, più veloce, più "verde" e più efficiente rispetto alle unità che andrà a sostituire. In particolare la velocità risulta aumentata del 10%, mentre il consumo di carburante per teu trasportato sarà ridotto del 50%. Tutte le nuove navi G4 continueranno ad utilizzare per i container caricati sul ponte il sistema "cell-guide" una caratteristica delle navi Acl che consentirà alla compagnia di confermare un record importante: quello di non aver mai perso in 30 anni un container in mare. L'innovativo design della "Atlantic Star" è opera della International Maritime Advisor (Ima) di Dragoer, in Danimarca, che ha risolto con successo il problema della zavorra. Nelle attuali navi "ConRo" il carico container, quello più pesante, è generalmente posizionato sul ponte mentre quello ro-ro, più leggero, è sistemato sottocoperta. Lo stivaggio dei ro-ro lascia più volume libero rispetto a quello dei contenitori. I danesi dell'Ima hanno ovviato al problema progettando lo spazio adibito al ro-ro al centro della nave, mentre verso prua e verso poppa vengono sistemati i contenitori così da avere una maggiore stabilità durante la navigazione. I cantieri Hudong - Zhonghua di Shanghai, incaricati da Grimaldi di costruire tutte le unità G4 sono i fra i migliori della Cina.

November 18, 2016, Halifax, Nova ScotiaThe Halifax Port Authority has commenced a significant master planning exercise to prepare for the arrival of ‘ultra-class’ containerized vessels of over 10,000 TEU; large scale industrial mega projects; increasing larger cruise vessels; and how the Halifax Seaport District can complement the urban growth and revitalization currently underway in downtown Halifax and Dartmouth. WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff Engineering Services, one of the world’s leading port development consultancy firms, has been hired to lead the master planning exercise. Aggressive timelines are being set. The exercise will prepare the Port of Halifax for the next five to 10 years. The Halifax Port Authority is working with partners including Halifax Regional Municipality and CN to identify alternative means of reducing the amount of container truck traffic in downtown Halifax. By working together, we will develop the best scenario for the Port and our city. Members of the public are invited to participate in the planning process by completing an online survey which can be found at www.PlanOurPort.ca.
