PSA Breakbulk loads superyacht structures destined for Canada
PSA Breakbulk, one of the Port of Antwerp’s largest steel and general cargo handlers, loaded three separate structures for a superyacht currently under construction, for their Montreal-based client Fednav Limited.
The largest of these structures measures 37 metres in length, 10 metres in width, and weighs around 40 metric tonnes. The three components were loaded from a pontoon, onto the Federal Cedar bulk carrier. Built in 2016, the Federal Cedar sails under the flag of the Marshall Islands. It has a length of 199.98 metres, a breadth of 23.82 metres, and a gross tonnage of 20789 metric tonnes.
The ship arrived in the Port of Antwerp on August 31st, and departed on September 6th. Its current destination is Bécancour, in Quebec, Canada, a city located on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, at the confluence of the Bécancour River, opposite Trois-Rivières.
Indeed, the Federal Cedar has been sailing the Fednav Atlantic Lakes Line (FALLine), a scheduled cargo liner service from Europe to ports along the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence system for almost 65 years. It services ports including Sorel, Hamilton, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Burns Harbour, Thunder Bay, and Duluth.
