CSL Tarantau at Pier 9

CSL Tarantau arrived at Pier 9 today for some work. A crane and an assortment of vehicles was noticed by the accommodation block, and the self unloading arm is swung out of the way. The ship is not appearing on AIS, suggesting it is partially powered down.

CSL Tacoma

CSL Tacoma spent a few days at anchor in the basin, before moving to pier 27 this morning, presumably to take on bunkers. The ship moved to National Gypsum this Afternoon.

Baie St. Paul departs National Gypsum

The Baie St. Paul made its first call to Halifax, Loading Gypsum for Cote Ste. Catherine in Quebec. The ship sailed just after 1400 on Sunday.

Baie St Paul is the first of 4 trillium Class Geared Bulkers, and was completed in China in 2012. CSL Also built 6 new panamax Trillum Class Ships for its Americas fleet, though they are built like traditional ocean going bulkers, and lack the seawaymax form of the Lakers. 2 additional trillium class lakers were built without the self unloading gear.

Though built in China, the ships were not built for ocean voyages, and arrived with temporary reinforcing that was removed on arrival to Canada. Baie St. Paul had additional reinforcing added during last winters layup to allow it perform coastal work. – Previous CSL Lakers were common callers in Halifax, Particularly Atlantic Huron and Salarium
