Paul R Tregurtha?

Update 4/18 11:00 per John Harrison and Boatnerds.com -- She is in the shipyard at Sturgeon Bay, WI., getting exhaust scrubbers installed. It is scheduled to head out May 18. This from info found on Boatnerd.com

Apparently, we have lots of folks who knew where she was. -- thank you all!

Does anyone know where the Paul R Tregurtha is?   Must be in a shipyard somewhere with AIS off.

  5. I believe she is still at Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, WI, completing the installation of her new exhaust gas scrubbers. According to the Interlake Steamship website, the crew is scheduled to report in mid-May.

  7. Information from Interlake Steamship Company. As of today (April 10, 2018), a departure date has not been set.
    Interlake Steamship Company’s M/V Paul R. Tregurtha sailed to Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding Company in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., in January (2018) to become the fifth vessel in its fleet – and the largest freighter on the Great Lakes – to be outfitted with freshwater, closed-loop exhaust gas scrubbers.

    In the final phase of Interlake’s Emission Reduction Program, the 1,013.5-foot Paul R. Tregurtha will be equipped with the same DuPont Marine Scrubbers from BELCO successfully installed on its fellow fleetmates — the M/V Hon. James L. Oberstar in 2015, the M/V James R. Barker and M/V Lee A. Tregurtha in 2016, and on the M/V Mesabi Miner in 2017.
    The scrubbers, which work to effectively strip the majority of sulfur and particulate matter from the ship’s stack emissions, are an important component of our continuing efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our fleet.

  9. Seems that I remember that it was at Sturgeon Bay Shipbuilding over the winter. I think it may have been right near the Roger Blough. The Tregurtha may still be there.

  15. I believe she is in Sturgeon Bay getting fitted with exhaust scrubbers. Her exhaust will be white just like Mesabi Miner's.
