The Baie St. Paul, CSL's New Trillium Class Laker Arrives in Port of Montreal, Completing Maiden Voyage


 MONTREAL, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Steamship Lines is proud to announce the arrival of the MV Baie St. Paul, the most technologically advanced ship to enter the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system. The award-winning vessel docked in the Port of Montreal, Quebec at 20:30 EDT on December 1, 2012, completing her maiden voyage that began in Jiangyin, China.
 
"We are extremely proud of and grateful to the talented officers and crew of the Baie St. Paul who successfully navigated a vessel built for the Lakes across the Pacific Ocean and through the Panama Canal," said Louis Martel, President of Canada Steamship Lines.
 
"The Baie St. Paul represents an important milestone for CSL and for the evolution of shipping in the Great Lakes.  Her outstanding environmental and operational performance is a testimony to CSL's ongoing commitment to customers and the communities in which we operate."
 
The first of four new Trillium Class self-unloading Lakers, the vessel named the "Bulk Ship of the Year 2012" by the International Bulk Journal is currently undergoing alterations to remove the temporary reinforcing structures that made possible her ocean passage. The Baie St. Paul will then be deployed immediately for service.
 
Employing leading-edge technology, the Baie St. Paul and all Trillium Class vessels will set new standards in operational and environmental performance, energy efficiency and reliability.
 
Canada Steamship Lines is a division of The CSL Group, the world's largest owner and operator of self-unloading vessels. Headquartered in Montreal with divisions based in the United States, the United Kingdom, Norway, Singapore and Australia, The CSL Group delivers more than 80 million tonnes of cargo annually for customers in the construction, steel, energy and agri-food sectors. Trillium Class is a trademark of The CSL Group.

We look forward to see great pictures of this ship!

She went up the st-Lawrence by night and in bad light conditions.

No doubt that she will reflects all the enterprise very generous pride towards local residents and shipspotters.

Before we can say anything about this series of new ships, it would be wise to ask the crew or at least wait to see how they do in the st-lawrence seaway/river. Like most newly built ships coming from chinese yards that I worked on ( fednav, canfornav and some new csl forebody patch up job), the desing is poor, quality is absent and shiphandling is nothing special, ice class ?,  and I'm waiting to see the rudder  they fitted on her... If it's the old kort nozzle design, I feel sorry for the crew already...( lots of shaking)

" bulk ship of the year" Smiley...yeah right, let's see how she does in the real world
