CSL’s Newest Ship

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. It is the first Diesel Electric Laker, and the first bulk carrier in Canada to have single point loading. 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.

In and out at Gold Bond.

Canada Day saw ships swapping places at Gold Bond Canada, which is the new name for National Gypsum’s Operations, lining up with one of their brands.

CSL Metis (above) sailed for Tampa allowing Algoma Integrity (below) to take her place. Algoma Integrity then sailed this morning for Baltimore.

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.
