Highlights: The Windsor Port Authority
The Port of Windsor officially welcomed the Fednav vessel M.V Federal Leda as the first overseas vessel arrival (salty) for the 2011 shipping and navigation season, following its docking at Morterm Terminals on April 5, 2011. The Windsor Port Authority Harbourmaster Peter Berry, Morterm Limited Theresa Boutette and Windsor Shipping Agency, Robin Waugh officially welcomed Captain Rafal Kapuscinski aboard the ship. The ship offloaded steel before continuing up the Great Lakes to complete its journey.
“Seaway System traffic flows complement the Port of Windsor well, with both domestic laker and ocean going project fleets carrying various cargoes from steel, aggregate, cement, bunker oil, liquid asphalt, salt, grain, canola, grains and even windmill parts” stated David Cree, President and CEO of the Windsor Port Authority.
According to Charles Pingle, Chairman of the Board of the Windsor Port Authority, “the City of Windsor is poised for a significant construction boom with numerous major infrastructure projects either already commenced or scheduled to start within the next year. This is very good news for the local stone terminals, and we are projecting that the next 5 years should meet and potentially surpass the records established in the late 1990’s.”
