In January, 2016, Nova and Algoma created NovaAlgoma Cement Carriers, or NACC. The fleet comprises pneumatic cement carriers that utilize a compressor and pump system to load and unload cement powder via a large diameter hose and is now the second largest in the world. This operation is very clean, with essentially no discharge to the atmosphere. Cement shipping is a regionalized market with generally smaller vessels servicing large global manufacturers that support infrastructure investment.

This position offers competitive benefits and compensation package, as well as a six week on/off leave system for a desirable balance between work and home life.
