Forte back in Prince Rupert Harbour for staging before trip to Kitimat and LNG Canada unloading

Back for a short stopover is the vessel Forte which has another cargo
destined for the Kitimat LNG Canada project

Once again a familiar ship with an unusual cargo is making for some conversation on the Prince Rupert Waterfront, the ocean vessel Forte is back at anchorage, located off of Rotary Waterfront on the weekend the vessel currently is stationed in Prince Rupert prior to its next stage of transit to Kitimat.

In an email correspondence, Katherine Voigt, Manager of Corporate Communications for the PRPA confirmed the itinerary for the vessel in the days ahead.

The Forte is at the Port of Prince Rupert to undertake a crew change and provisioning. It is destined for Kitimat to supply the LNG Canada project.

According to the PRPA vessel movements page, the Forte and her cargo arrived on the 21st and will depart Prince Rupert for Kitimat by the end of the week.

Ship watchers around town can get a closer look at the vessel in between this afternoon's heavy downpours from the Cow Bay Dock.  

With the Forte having shifted anchorage to a spot just off the Atlin Terminal waterfront area today.
