Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway

MV Nukumi is the first diesel-electric Laker and the first single point loader to operate in Canada.

Several innovations are built into MV Nukumi’s design to reduce its overall environmental footprint. These include diesel-electric tier 3 engines, a ballast water treatment system, a waste heat recovery system, and overall quieter machinery.

A fixed, single point of loading system with a single hopper, and a cargo-handling system that eliminates the need for shifting during loading, improves the safety and efficiency of cargo operations.

A modern hull design and state-of-the-art propulsion system enhance the manoeuvrability of the vessel and increase the safety of navigation in shallow waterways.

MV Nukumi is wholly owned and operated by CSL.
