Federal Saint-Laurent first vessel of the year at Trois-Rivières

Federal Saint-Laurent first vessel of the year at Trois-Rivières

(Posted on 08/01/22)

The Federal Saint-Laurent is the first vessel to call the Port of Trois-Rivières in 2022. It docked at the Port on 6 January at 5:48 am, after a 15-day crossing of the Atlantic. The vessel, with its 22 crew members of Indian nationality, left the port of Brake in Germany on 22 December, 2021. Its cargo of steel, unloaded by Logistec, originates from British Steel and is destined for various steel distributors and companies specialized in super structures in Quebec.

To receive the title of first vessel, the vessel must arrive in Trois-Rivières from an overseas port without making a stopover at another Canadian port and perform loading or unloading operations at the Port of Trois-Rivières.

“For a second consecutive year, the ceremony of the first vessel of the year is done incompliance with distancing and prevention measures. However, we maintain this 56-year old tradition and present the Captain of the Federal St-Laurent, Mr. Shaikh Shahid Ibrahim and the Chief Engineer, Mr. Arundeepak Rajamoha, with the traditional souvenir gifts with a distinctly Trois-Rivières touch”, explains Mr. Jacques Paquin, executive vice-president of the Port of Trois-Rivières.

Mr. Ibrahim and Mr. Rajamoha received a giclée reproduction of the painting Un port, une équipe, produced by Mauricie artist Ms. Caroline St Pierre, as well as baskets of regional products. Mr. Paquin also wishes to underline the essential contribution of the Port's workers who are in charge of the unloading activities of the Federal St-Laurent and who have been operating under unusual conditions for almost two years now.

The Federal Saint-Laurent is a 2019-built bulk carrier sailing under the Marshall Islands flag. Its length overall (LOA) is 199.98 m, with a beam (width) of 23.76 m. It is docked at section 9 of the Port of Trois-Rivières for a period of five days. During its stay in Trois-Rivières, it is represented by the Fednav shipping agency, a Canadian company that also owns the vessel.

In addition to the work by crew members, winter navigation is made possible through the efforts of many actors, including the Coast Guard and its icebreaker fleet, as well as St. Lawrence River pilots. The Port of Trois-Rivières also took the opportunity to recognize their important contribution.

As part of the 17 Canadian Port Authorities and active since 140 years, the Port of Trois Rivières is an important player in regional, national and international economic development for major industrial sectors such as the aluminum industry, forestry and agri-food.
