Stolt Concept, pictured left, is a 37,000 GRT 1A1 chemical tanker, built 1997 in Aalborg, Denmark. It is state of the art - most modern diesel electric tanker afloat.
Bob Reynolds submitted these pictures and writes.... "February 2003 - Stolt Integrity pulls into Come-By-Chance, Newfoundland Labrador, Canada, after a slow steaming for four days in balmy Canadian weather - force 10 Gale - awaiting pilot's appearance. Full ship's complement involved in de-icing of decks. Most Pilipino feared death at this point, as most never seen snow before. WELCOME TO CANADA LADS!!!"
I don't have much information on these pictures submitted quite a while back. But I do know they are of the CCGS Sir William Alexander, a Light Icebreaker - Major Navaids Tender in the Canadian Coast Guard which operates off the East Coast of Canada. This particular series of shots were reportedly taken on a search and rescue mission for a fishing boat in 2004. If you know more, please let us know.
