Fednav Welcomes Its Latest Handy Bulker

Canadian bulk shipping company Fednav Limited has taken delivery of Federal Montreal, its newest Great Lakes-suitable Handysize vessel.

The delivery ceremony for the 34,500 dwt bulker took place at the Oshima Shipyard in Japan on August 29.

The Marshal Islands-flagged Federal Montreal is an ice-class bulk carrier, built to trade in the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes. It is certified by DNV GL and is equipped with the latest environmental protection technology, according to Fednav.

The 41,591 cbm newbuild features a length of 200 meters and a breadth of 23.8 meters.

Named in honour of the city Fednav calls home, Federal Montreal is the company’s first ship ever to bear the name of a city.

In late July 2019, the shipping company also took delivery of Federal St Laurent, a 34,500 dwt Handy bulk carrier.

Fednav’s fleet is comprised of close to 125 bulk carriers trading worldwide, 65 of these are owned.
