Alexandria Bay, April 22, 2015 - The tugs Ocean Georgie Bain and Ocean Ross Gaudreault pulled out the bulk vessel Juno from his awkward position as it was beached under the Thousand Islands bridge.

With a capacity of 20,603 tons, the grounded vessel required the closure of the Seaway. A few minutes were needed for the two Ocean tugs to carry out the salvage maneuvers needed to free the vessel and tow it to the nearest dock, thus limiting the St. Lawrence Seaway’s closure to a few hours.
