It must be spring- Atlantic and Secunda expand

There must be spring in the air as both Atlantic Towing Ltd and Secunda Marine Canada have added to their fleets.
Atlantic Towing Ltd have acquired a sister to last year's acquisition Atlantic Kestrel built as Jaya Supreme. The large anchor 12,000 kW anchor handling tug suppliers are the largest in the Atlantic fleet.
The ship to be acquired is under construction as Jaya Sovereign in Singapore for May 2013 delivery. See spec sheet here:

Secunda Marine Canada* (through a Nova Scotia numbered company) has acquired the Scotian Sea from Havila Shipping ASA of Norway. Built as Rescue Saga, it has carried the name Havila Runde since 1998. Of 2,107 gross tons, it is powered by a pair of 3500 bhp Cats and is fitted with an azimuthing thruster forward, and transverse bow and stern thrusters. It was registered in Halifax today (March 20) in Halifax.

Could this spell the end of Sable Sea which has been laid up for months at pier 9A?

* Since being repatriated from ownership by McDermott International one year ago, Secunda Marine Services became Secunda Canada LP, doing business as Secunda Canada.
