CSL Tacoma arrived during the night at National Gypsum. The ship is a regular caller and would not normally rate much notice. However when fleet mate and sister ship CSL Tarantau arrived at Pier 9C for repairs it became a challenge to get a photo with both ships in the same frame.
CSL Tacoma was built by the Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangyin, China and is a member of CSL's ocean going Trillium class of self-unloaders. It measures 43,691 gt, 71,552 dwt.
CSL Tarantau, also a Trillium class ship, built by the same yard in 2013 with a tonnages of 43,691gt comes in at 71,279 dwt. did not start life as a CSL ship. It was built for CSL Americas pool partner Klaveness and named Balto.
