The Equinox Class represents a new generation of Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Waterway bulk cargo vessel. The ships have been specially designed to optimize fuel efficiency and operating performance thus minimizing environmental impact.
A 40% improvement in energy efficiency over Algoma’s current fleet average is achieved with the use of a modern Tier II compliant engine and improvements to hull form and design. A fully integrated IMO approved exhaust gas scrubber removes over 98% of all sulphur oxides from shipboard emissions. The use of exhaust gas scrubbers represents the first application of an IMO approved integrated scrubber on a Great Lakes – St. Lawrence vessel class.
