On January 25, 2014, two newbuild Trillium Class bulk carriers were launched for Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (CSL) at Yangfan shipyard in Zhoushan, China.

The 36,100-DWT, seaway size gearless bulkers are part of CSL’s ambitious fleet renewal program which oversaw the delivery of four new Trillium Class self-unloading Lakers and three Panamax self-unloaders in 2012-2013.

The two new vessels are scheduled to enter the Canada Steamship Lines fleet later this year and will operate in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system.

Featuring IMO Tier II compliant main engines and the latest environmental and safety technologies, the state-of-the art new bulkers will be consistent with the high standards set by the Trillium Class of operational efficiency, reliability and environmental sustainability.
