CSL’s Third Trillium Class Vessel Set Sail on Maiden Voyage

CSL’s third of four Trillium Class self-unloading Lakers, the Thunder Bay, has set sail on her maiden voyage.

At noon local time on May 29, 2013, the vessel departed Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangyin, China, and is expected in Montreal in late July where she will begin operating in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway.

The vessel is commanded by Captain Michael Despotovich and Chief Engineer Jerry Stemmler, and is expected to take approximately 50-60 days to complete her voyage.

The Thunder Bay was preceded by the Whitefish Bay earlier this month, and by the award-winning Trillium Class Baie St. Paul, which began operating in the Great Lakes in December 2012. One additional Trillium Class self-unloading vessels and two new bulk carriers are set to join the Canada Steamship Lines fleet in 2013-2014.
