Scrapped in 2011. See information below
Two tugs brought the Halifax into the scrap yard at Aliaga, Turkey in June, 2011. These pictures from Boatnerd show the beginning of the scrapping of the Halifax shortly after that.
Before the scrapping, the Halifax had 16 hatches that opened into 6 cargo holds with a maximum cargo capacity of 27,300 tons. Above the deck she had a 250-foot self-unloading boom that allowed cargo discharge at a rate of up to 6,000 tons per hour. She was of course named after the city of Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, Canada. The Halifax was owned and operated by Canada Steamship Lines of Montreal Quebec, Canada.
