The Zim Kingston finally arrived in Nanaimo Harbour last Friday while it waits for a berth at DP World Nanaimo where the damaged containers on board will be removed. The vessel arrived under heavy escort after Transport Canada safety-related concerns were satisfied. Included in the entourage for the transit from Constance Bank included two escort tugs, a Canadian Coast Guard motor lifeboat, a US Coast Guard vessel while in US waters, a marine mammal watch vessel and an environment monitoring vessel. Once the operation is completed in Nanaimo, the Zim Kingston will be taken into the Port of Vancouver for removal of the undamaged containers.
