Algoma Central Corporation is renewing its domestic dry-bulk fleet by launching a new class of dry bulk carriers, the Equinox Class of vessels.
The innovative new design of these Equinox Class vessels is a result of our project team working for nearly two years in conjunction with Deltamarin, a leading vessel design firm. The Equinox Class of vessels will be considerably more efficient and have a significantly reduced environmental footprint.
Our ship replacement and modernization strategy has led to continual and major investments in the Algoma Tankers fleet. This has helped to meet new standards in the evolving needs of our customers. Algoma Central Corporation began its fleet renewal program with the building of the tanker Algoscotia in 2004. This was followed by the delivery of both the Algonova and AlgoCanada in 2008.Read more
