According to
Arctic starts trip to scrapyard
3/31 - The former Fednav vessel Arctic, sold for scrap recently, departed Quebec Tuesday under her own power heaved for Aliaga, Turkey.

Legendary mv Arctic sold for scrap
Shipfax doesn't deplay the word legendary very often, but the recent news that Fednav has sold their Arctic for scrap after 43 years of service surely warrants at least a few superlatives.
A 30,000 deadweight tonnes replacement ship is currently undergoing trials in Yokohama, Japan and so the Arctic has been laid up in Quebec City until it sets out for the scrap yard in Aliaga, Turkey.

While the current ship is named for Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier's arctic exploration ship the auxiliary CGS Arctic*, the new ship will be named Arvik I, using the Inuktitut word for bow head whale.
