First ship of the year: ArcelorMittal presents its steel-headed cane to the captain of the Santa Barbara

Port-Cartier, January 21, 2022 – ArcelorMittal Infrastructure Canada G.P. (“ArcelorMittal”) presented the 2022 edition of its steel-headed cane to Captain Aldwin Revelar of the bulk carrier Santa Barbara, the first ship to leave its Port-Cartier port facilities this year.

Originating from the Netherlands, the ship will depart ArcelorMittal’s port facilities today at 16:01 bound for Asia, carrying more than 155,000 tonnes of iron ore concentrate aboard. The bulk carrier Santa Barbara was built in 2015. It measures 295 metres long by 46 metres wide.  

In 2021, ArcelorMittal’s port facilities in Port-Cartier welcomed 409 ships, performed more than 900 port entry and exit manoeuvres and handled over 25 million tonnes of iron ore, raw materials, fuel and grain.  

ArcelorMittal’s internationally recognized port at Port-Cartier is the largest private port in Canada and has been part of our heritage for over 60 years.
