Congressman Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyoming) addresses local dignitaries and guests at the christening ceremony of the “ANSAC Wyoming”. As “Godmother” of the ship, Representative Lummis christened her on April 18, 2015 at the Port of Portland.
Standing from L-R are Mr. T. Hisatomi of the Marubeni Corporation, Tokyo, Japan; Mr. Edward Flynn, President of Tronox Alkali, Philadelphia, Pa.; and Mr. Chris Douville, President and CEO of ANSAC, Westport, CT.
Congressman Cynthia Lummis prepares to christen the “ANSAC Wyoming” prior to her maiden voyage to Asian ports. The Wyoming will carry 33,000 metric tons of Wyoming-produced soda ash on a continuous basis to countries around the world.
