Press Release
Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has awarded a contract for the five-year drydocking of the M/V Pelee Islander to Great Lakes Shipyard, Cleveland, Ohio.


The  Pelee Islander will arrive at Great Lakes Shipyard in early April and will be hauled-out using the Shipyard’s new 700-metric ton Marine Travelift. Work will include hull inspection and painting; propeller, shaft, and rudder inspection; steel work; and other routine maintenance.


The M/V Pelee Islander is a passenger ferry operated by Owen Sound Transportation Company, an Agency of the Province of Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry, and provides transportation services between Kingsville, Leamington, Ontario; Pelee Island, Ontario; and Sandusky, Ohio. The contract for repairs of the M/V Pelee Islander marks the second Canadian-flag vessel repair project at Great Lakes Shipyard.


Great Lakes Shipyard, a division of The Great Lakes Towing Company, operates a full-service shipyard, specializing in new construction, repairs, and modifications of all types of vessels and barges. The Shipyard is currently undergoing a major expansion, which includes a new state-of-the-art 770-ton Marine Travelift, the largest on the Great Lakes, second largest in the Western Hemisphere, and the third largest in the World. The Shipyard’s recently completed projects include winter lay-up, steel work and winch installation on McKeil Marine’s tug and barge John Spence and Niagara Spirit, the Shipyard’s first repair contract with a Canadian flag operator, and the construction and delivery of a work boat for the Port of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company is currently under contracts with SEACOR Holdings Inc. for the construction of two state-of-the-art ASD tractor tugs.
