Originally constructed as the ore carrier Ems Ore; this vessel was built by Schlieker-Werft, Hamburg, West Germany and launched October 17, 1959 for Transatlantic Bulk Carriers, her original dimensions being 546'00" loa x 73'10" beam x 40'02" depth; 20,000 dwt. Acquired by Hall Corporation Shipping Ltd., Montreal, PQ in 1976 to carry Labrador ore from Gulf of St. Lawrence ports to the steel mills in Hamilton, ON. The vessel was taken to Davie Shipbuilding, Lauzon, PQ where a complete new forebody was installed from the engine room forward; her pilothouse and midship cabins were modernized and moved to the stern; a 16-cylinder 1,200 horsepower Caterpillar diesel bow thruster and a controllable pitch propeller also being installed. She retained her original power plant. The vessel was renamed Montcliffe Hall in 1977. The Montcliffe Hall was acquired by N. M. Paterson & Sons Ltd., Thunder Bay, ON in 1988 following the liquidation of the Halco fleet. She was renamed Cartierdoc(2) at that time. Today she sails as the Cederglen for CSL
