Chengxi Shipyard Hands Over CSL Tacoma

The No.5 self-unloading bulk carrier, CSL Tacoma, built for Canada Steamship Lines (CSL) as a part of its fleet expansion programme has departed Chengxi Shipyard.

These self-unloaders measure a Seaway maximum of 225.6 by 23.8 metres, feature custom hull design for increased cargo lift, EPA Tier II compliant main engines, automated cargo-handling equipment and the latest environmental and safety systems.

Like all CSL self-unloaders, the Trillium Class ships offer exceptional value, speed, versatility and efficiency resulting in reduced on shore infrastructure and labour requirements. When combined with quick turnaround in port, these attributes make this bulk cargo handling option an effective and competitive solution that helps reduce costs with minimum environmental impact.

The Trillium Class vessels will boast technology that will provide them with industry-leading benefits and advantages.
