NSL Expands Container Capacity Of Ro/Ro Ships

Newfoundland Steamships Limited (NSL) recently announced that its ro ro containerships Cabot and Chimo are being modified to accommodate a total of 100 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units) each of container space on their twice-weekly sailings to St.

John's and Corner Brook, Newfoundland.

The Chimo, which presently accommodates 60 TEUs, is being increased to 100 TEUs through the addition of 18 20-foot container slots below deck and 22 spaces on deck. The Cabot, which previously carried 80 TEUs has already been modified with the addition of 20 more 20-foot spaces on deck. Production at both NSL terminals at Montreal, Canada, and St. John's has recently been improved through the purchase of two shore cranes of a new high-production design ordered from American Hoist. These cranes were acquired at a cost of $1 million each and went into operation this summer.
