Nukumi arrived in Halifax and tied up at pier 25. the ship is owned and operated by CSL for Windsor salt and was specifically designed to service Windsor’s Magdalen Islands salt mines.

The single loading point means the ship will not have to shift along its berth to line up with the ship loading equipment to fill all the holds.
Construction of the ship began in August 2020, and the ship departed Jiangyin, China for Halifax at the end of January.
