The Canadian flagged Nanticoke was built in 1980 at Collingwood, Ontario and is 730 feet long  with 22 hatches that open into 5 cargo holds, giving her a maximum carrying capacity of 35,100 tons. Above the deck she has a 261 foot self-unloading boom that enables her to unload cargo at a rate of 6,700 tons per hour. The Nanticoke is powered by a 10 cylinder diesel engine producing a total of 10,700 hp and giving the ship a top speed of 16 mph. She is owned and operated by Canada Steamship Lines of Montreal. She has been strengthened for ocean service and sometimes carries cargo from the Twin Ports to ports on the Atlantic such as Sydney, Nova Scotia. In 1997, she carried ballast material to be used under an offshore drilling platform. In 2009, she was given a new name, Salarium and was placed in charter to another Canadian company.
