Big CSL order at Chinese shipyard

2010-08-11

The CSL Group has placed an order for five self-unloading bulk carriers with an option for another five with China's Chengxi shipyard in a contract worth about $500 million. They are destined for international and possibly domestic maritime trades.

"Five of the vessels are scheduled to be delivered in 2012," CSL President Gerry Carter told Maritime Magazine. "We would like two of the ships to be deployed in the Great Lakes trades, but this depends on the federal government finally carrying through its proposal of last fall to eliminate a 25% duty on imported vessels. Unfortunately, Ottawa is still procrastinating on this issue."
