Shipyard building first new Great Lakes ship since 1983

Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding has received a contract from Interlake Steamship Company of Middleburg Heights, Ohio for the construction of the first new Great Lakes bulk carrier in decades.  The new 639-foot long, self-unloading vessel will have a capacity of 28,000 deadweight tonnage.  It's also designed to be more energy efficient.  Interlake President Mark Barker says Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding was a logical choice to build a new vessel to meet customers demands.


The new vessel is scheduled to be complete at the Sturgeon Bay shipyard and delivered to Interlake Steamship Company in 2022.
