Canadian locals found themselves in quite an uncanny situation when they saw two ships collide in a rather unusual manner within Canadian waters. The two ships involved were Florence Spirit, a cargo ship, and Alanis, a heavy lifting vessel.
Florence spirit was built in the year 2004 and is currently owned by McKeil Marine. Alanis, on the other hand, is a 2010 built vessel owned by Herman ship.
The collision reportedly took place at 3:55 pm at a place south of Port Robinson. Seaway officials have undertaken investigation on the matter, as said by Jean Aubry-Morin, vice president of external relations, St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation.
It is said that Florence Spirit had cargo loaded with coal, heading to the port of Grande-Anse. Alanis was carrying wind turbines, heading to Montreal.
Even though there weren’t any reported, Florence Speed suffered the worst damages.
