CSL Pool Update

CSL Metis got underway from pier 26 to National Gypsum this morning on completion of its maintenance work.

 As it did so, more details emerged about the CSL / Algoma deal to purchase the five Klaveness self-unloaders.

CSL Americas will take over  Balto (which is built to CSL Trillium standard) and  Barkald.

Balto - arriving Halifax for gypsum

Barkald - waiting to load gypsum Halifax

Algoma Shipping will take over Balchen and Baldock.

Baldock - unloading coal at Point Tupper, NS

Marbulk (a 50/50 CSL/ Algoma operation ) will take over Balder.

Balder - sailing from Halifax with gypsum

Name changes can be expected as well as funnel markings. Perhaps the latter will get the golden seahorse, which we have been kissing in Halifax lately. See Shipfax nelvana-end-of-road.html:
