The port of Saguenay welcomed its first ocean-going vessel of the year with M/V Jaeger Arrow docking at the Marcel-Dionne wharf in Grande-Anse at 8 pm on January 1, 2020. Saguenay Port Authority, represented by its President and CEO, Carl Laberge, and the Director of Operations and Harbor Master, Marc-André Savard, underscored this tradition by presenting a commemorative plaque to the captain, Jan Per Richardt.
Flying the flag of the Bahamas, M/V Jaeger Arrow arrived from Rotterdam with a shipment of liquid pitch and general goods intended for regional industrial enterprises. The vessel, 171 metres long, with a maximum draft of 11 m and a capacity of 24,000 tonnes, left port on January 5, 2020 in the early evening after having loaded aluminum for Europe.
To be eligible, the vessel must arrive from a foreign port without having made any stopovers before arriving at the port, and the purpose of its call must be to load or unload cargo at the port.
