Canadian owner CSL has sent its 1959-built bulker Eda, formerly known as Cedarglen, to an eco-friendly recycling yard in Turkey.
The ship will be dismantled as part of the company’s fleet optimisation program and it will be recycled in accordance with local legislation and international conventions.
“Despite her age, Cedarglen was an incredibly well-maintained ship with an impressive safety record. It’s thanks to the great teamwork and dedication on board that she was able to operate as long as she did,” said Louis Martel, president and CEO of The CSL Group.
Originally built as the deep-sea ore carrier Ems Ore in 1959, the vessel was lengthened at Davie shipyard in 1976 and renamed Cartierdoc. CSL purchased the ship in 2002, and used it for grain trades on the Great Lakes.
