After a very busy day berthing ships, Atlantic Fir left this evening with the barge Atlantic Tuna, destined for Point Tupper. The tug has been in Halifax for the last week or so, but is based in Point Tupper. She is the third tug of the name, was built in 2005 and is rated at 5050 bhp. She is also fitted with a deck crane, which was used to assist in rigging the towing bridle.The "spotting" clue for this tug is the two piece spray shield over the vents on her funnels.
The barge is fitted for hauling gravel.
