Oceanex Connaigra

The largest Canadian Flag Con/Ro ship will set sail tomorrow from Flensburg, Germany destined for St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Following a series of successful sea trials, Oceanex Inc. accepted delivery of the vessel today as originally scheduled. The Oceanex Connaigra is expected to arrive in St. John’s next weekend, where it will stay for a few days before sailing to Halifax to work the Halifax service while the Oceanex Sanderling completes a short dry dock. The vessel will then move on to Montreal, where it will provide a fixed weekly service between the ports of Montreal and St. John’s.

Captain Sid Hynes, Executive Chairman at Oceanex, stated, “Oceanex Connaigra has been custom designed to meet the many specific requirements of our trade and promises to provide optimum performance and reliability in the harsh weather conditions of east coast Canada.”

The Oceanex Connaigra is designed to carry containers varying in size from 20-53’ as well as trucks, trailers, cars and over dimensional cargo with a total of 13,700 square meters of available space and a deadweight of 19,300 tons. Other custom features include movable vehicle decks and a wide, reinforced side ramp, thereby improving the versatility of the vessel. For crew comfort and cargo safety, the ice-class Oceanex Connaigra has been outfitted with anti-roll stability tanks and a gyro controlled active fin stabilizer system, which ensures a stable platform and performance reliability. Classed by DNV as a “clean ship,” the Oceanex Connaigra already meets stricter environmental regulations set to take effect in 2015.
