Personnel Laker 'Baie Comeau'

The last of Canada Steamship Lines’ (CSL) four newbuild Trillium Class self-unloading Lakers, the 'Baie Comeau', set sail June 30, on her maiden voyage from Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangyin, China, en route to Montreal, Quebec, for service on the Great Lakes & St. Lawrence Seaway.

Commanding the Baie Comeau as she crosses the Pacific Ocean and transits through the Panama Canal is Captain Andriy Bondarenko, with Chief Engineer Francis Cotton. She is expected to take approximately 50-60 days to complete her voyage.

When she arrives in Montreal in early September, she will join her sister ships, the Thunder Bay, the Whitefish Bay and the award winning Baie St. Paul. Two new bulk carriers are also set to join the Canada Steamship Lines fleet in 2013-2014.

The four new Lakers and two bulkers are part of the CSL Group’s broader fleet renewal program, which includes three new Trillium Class Panamax self-unloading vessels for the CSL Americas fleet. The Rt. Hon. Paul E. Martin and the CSL Tecumseh are now operating along the coasts of the Americas and will be joined by a third Panamax later in 2013.
