Chinese Heavylift Calls in BC

Red Zen 1

The 51,969-dwt Chinese heavylift ship Red Zen 1 arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia during mid-March with eight Chinese-manufactured barges on board, six for Mercury Towing and two for Seaspan. The 216.74-meter by 43-meter heavylifter was built five years ago by CIMC Raffles Offshore and currently sails under the Liberian flag. Photo courtesy of Robert Etchell.
