SM Line’s SM Busan, a 6622 TEU containership, arrived in Victoria’s Ogden Point terminal to effect repairs that may take several weeks. The vessel had departed Portland, Oregon on December 18th for its return voyage to South Korea, and after encountering engine problems and difficulty in maintaining top speed the ship anchored briefly at Constance Bank under tug escort.  The vessel shifted to Ogden Point on January 2nd to commence repair work on the ship’s engine.  The SM Busan is the first vessel to use Ogden Point’s new Pier B mooring dolphin extension that was completed ahead of the anticipated 2020 cruise season.
