Fourth iteration of FEDERAL ST LAURENT

A handover ceremony on Thursday (27 June) at Oshima Shipyard in Japan was attended by officials from both Fednav and Oshima.

 

The FEDERAL ST LAURENT is a 34,500 dwt international ice-class bulk carrier, flagged in the Marshall Islands. Built to trade on the St Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, the vessel is certified by DNV GL. Fednav said it emits 30% less greenhouse gases than similar vessels built 20 years ago and is equipped with an Optimarin ultraviolet ballast water treatment system.

 

Named in honour of the river that flows through Montreal, where the company’s headquarters are located, and to celebrate Fednav’s 75th anniversary, the vessel is the fourth FEDERAL ST LAURENT in Fednav’s history. “The name has always represented the company’s special bond to the St. Lawrence River (St. Laurent in French) and its maritime community,” stated Fednav.

 

“For our 75th anniversary we wanted to recognise our hometown river, and to reflect its significance for our family, our employees, and our partners,” said Paul Pathy, president and CEO of Fednav.

 

“This vessel is anchored in the history of Fednav, but more importantly, it represents the strong links between the Great Lakes, the Seaway, the St. Lawrence River and the rest of the world.”
