The Bulker Barkald, recently made a run from Halifax to Philidephia. While in the City of brothery love,  She took a new name – CSL Reliance, but Maintained her Bahamas registry. She returned to National Gypsum yesterday with her new Identity.

She was built in Oshima, Japan in 2002 she was owned by the Torvald Klaveness Group of Oslo. Until November 2015 when CSL purchased her and Trilium Class vessel Balto. Both ships operates in the CSL International pool with ships of CSL Americas, Oldendorff Carriers, Marbulk Shipping Inc and Algoma Shipping Inc.

Under similar deals at the same time, Marbulk, which is owned 50/50 by CSL and Algoma, Purchased Balder (now Venture)  and Algoma  purchased Balchen (Now Algoma Vision) and Baldock (Now Algoma Value) from the Torvald Klaveness Group


A New Canadian

this post is a bit late..
Algoma Hansa tied up at pier 34 in Late July. As the sole foreign flagged tanker in the Algoma fleet, she was purchased with her sister vessel who would become Algosea. Algoma Hansa operated in an international pool of tankers, and was modified for seaway service during her 2013 routine drydocking. She was Canadian registered on July 31.

I caught her this past friday, performing a fire drill.
