Adding a little extra excitement to the latest edition of Port Watch is the arrival late last week of the USS Springfield, a nuclear-powered attack submarine undergoing maintenance work and system certifications at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. There are also a few cargo ships scheduled to arrive in port this week.
A tanker came and went over the weekend, and a shipment of heating oil is due to arrive Wednesday. Other than that, it’s looking like a quiet Thanksgiving week at the Port of New Hampshire. Details in this week's edition of Port Watch.
The tug Ruth Reinauer guided the barge RTC 102 into port with a load of heating oil this morning, and the tanker Great Eastern follows with heating oil and diesel on Wednesday. Get the details in the latest edition of Port Watch.
The center span of the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge was removed on Friday night, and it’s back to business as usual at the port. A gypsum ship arrives today, and a salt ship departs tomorrow, with another tanker scheduled to arrive on Friday.
