Sept-Îles welcomes first ship of 2019
(Posted on 12/02/19)
The M/V Frontier Voyager, a Panama registered vessel, sailing from Kimistu in Japan, was the first ship to arrive in Sept-Îles this year at 3 p.m. on 9th January. The vessel arrived in ballast and will set sail again on January 22, 2019 with 170 000 tons of iron ore from IOC Rio Tinto Mining Company destined for Rotterdam in Holland.
The Port of Sept-Îles is one of North America’s largest ore-handling ports, with an expected volume of more than 30 million tons in 2019.
During a short ceremony, Mr. Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO of the Port of Sept-Îles, presented Captain Paeg Sung Hon with the prestigious cane bearing the Port of Sept-Îles insignia.
Several gifts were also offered to the Captain by Mr. Réjean Porlier, Mayor of the City of Sept-Îles, as well as by Mr. Benoit Méthot, General Manager Port and Railway QNS&L, IOC Rio Tinto Mining Company, by Mrs. Lucie Lessard, President of the Seamen’s Center, by Mr. Pierre Côté,
Chairman of the Port of Sept-Îles and by Mr. Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO of the Port of Sept-Îles.
This tradition, now in its 32nd year, marks the arrival of the first ship of the year to call the Port. To be eligible, the vessel must come directly from a foreign Port and be bound for a destination outside the country without making any other calls at a Canadian Port.
The port facilities at Sept-Îles play a vital and strategic role in the economy of Eastern Canada. Annual economic impacts are estimated at nearly $1 billion and almost 4,000 direct and indirect jobs.
