The launching of the first of two new Algoma 650-foot (198-metre) self-unloading Great Lakes bulk carriers from three Croatian shipyards took place December 29, 2016. This new Equinox Class ship will serve a range of customers with a particular focus on industry shippers of salt and aggregates. The new vessel features all of the advances inherent in the company’s proprietary Equinox Class design. This includes the installation of exhaust gas scrubbers certified for use on the Equinox Class ships to remove at least 97% of all SOx emissions from the exhaust stream.
