The bunkering tanker Hamilton Energy is seen in this photograph just after she had departed from wharf 2 in the harbour at Port Weller during the late afternoon hours of December 15th, 2001. The tug Glenevis was secured to her port quarter, out of sight and was providing motive power for the tanker which has been without it's main power plant for most of 2001.

She was destined for Port Weller Drydocks where she would spend the winter of 2001-2 undergoing a refit that would see a new engine intalled, a new variable pitch propeller and a stern thruster fitted and hull painting. On April 1st of 2001 she was badly damaged in Hamilton when she was struck by the Ocean vessel Utviken. As a result of the accident Hamilton Energy's rudder post was broken, her stern plating was damaged, her propeller was bent and the propeller shaft was driven into the engine block destroying it.
