The ST-CERGUE and her sister ship LAUSANNE were ordered by Suisse-Atlantique SA Renens, Switzerland from the Japanese concern JMU, Japan Marine United Corporation, Tokyo and constructed in their shipyard in Kure (near Hiroshima). The ST-CERGUE is the first ship and was delivered and registered under Swiss flag on 10.01.2017 (official no. 220, call sign: HBEA, registered owner: Oceana Shipping AG, Chur, Switzerland).
The ST-CERGUE is the seventh ship to bear this name. She is a bulk carrier with five cargo holds and especially designed to carry grain cargoes, however not suitable to load logs. In order to discharge grain and other bulk materials in smaller, poorly equipped ports, she is fitted with four wireless remote controlled grabs.
The ST-CERGUE has a complement of 21 persons, all of them are Ukrainians.
The first voyage went first to Ulsan for bunkers, then to Newcastle NSW (Australia) to load coal for an Indonesian port.
