The recently completed Algoma Innovator, the first of two new Algoma Corporation’s self-unloading dry-bulk freighters, has commenced its voyage from Croatia to Canada.

The vessel departed the 3 Maj shipyard in Croatia on February 23, 2018, and is expected to arrive in mid-March carrying a cargo of bauxite.

The 25,100 dwt bulker has a length of 198 meters, a width of 23 meters. It is intended for service on the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.

Algoma Corporation said that Algoma Innovator will be the sixth Equinox Class vessel added to the company’s domestic fleet and will be joined by the Algoma Sault in operations this spring, bringing the total vessels in the class to seven. Five additional vessels are under development contracts.

“With the addition of the new class-leading vessels to our domestic fleet, the 2018 navigation season is already turning out to be an exciting one,” Ken Bloch Soerensen, President and CEO of Algoma, commented.

Algoma has another four ships under development at the 3 Maj Shipyard with a fifth ship under construction at Yangzijiang shipyard in China.
