I am going to start this thread again as we have a few new ships on the lakes;

Algoma's newest vessel, the Algoma Innovator, just transited the piers this week.

The Algoma Innovator is the first 650-foot self-unloading dry-bulk carrier built in the Equinox Class design. Delivered in 2017, the ship enters service in the Great Lakes trading area in the 2018 shipping season. Featuring all the innovations of the Equinox Class design, the vessel has been engineered to be a leader in the river class business. The forward-mounted boom permits the cargo to be delivered in niche spaces, allowing flexibility and greater access for the customer.

St. Catharines, Ontario (February 23, 2018) — Algoma Central Corporation (“Algoma” or “the Company”) (TSX: ALC), a leading provider of marine transportation services, today announced that the recently completed Algoma Innovator, the first of two new Equinox Class 650’ 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 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; comprising four gearless bulkers and three self-unloaders. 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” said Ken Bloch Soerensen, President and CEO of Algoma. “The Algoma Innovator will be a leader in the river-class segment and we look forward to being able to offer more flexibility to our customers.”
Algoma has another four ships under development at the 3 Maj Shipyard with a fifth ship under construction at Yangzijiang shipyard in China.
Algoma’s Equinox Class vessels bring new technological advancements in fuel efficiency, reducing its environmental footprint and its forward-thinking design has made Algoma a frontrunner in the marine industry. The Company’s dedication to fleet renewal coupled with its commitment to customer satisfaction has empowered it to grow both domestically and abroad.

Algoma Compass

A new ship to the Algoma fleet but not a newly built ship, the vessel was the Roger M. Kyes when launched back in 1973 and more recently the Adam E. Cornelius and as you can see in one of the pictures, the name still shows on the port side shot.
From Boatnerds;
The Adam E. Cornelius has been an active vessel in the American Steamship Company fleet participating in the stone, limestone, coal, and taconite/iron ore pellet trades. With a downturn in the steel industry, the vessel was laid up in Toledo from May through September 2001 after which she returned to service.

Adam E. Cornelius laid up at Huron, Ohio, on Jan. 6, 2015. In late December 2017, American Steamship Co. sold the vessel, along with three others, to the Algoma Central Corp. of St. Catharines, Ont. The vessel returned to service in 2018 as Algoma Compass.

Another new Algoma vessel came through the piers this week, the Algoma Sault joins the fleet, another ship built in China.

"The Algoma Sault — the second Seaway-max Equinox class self-unloading bulk carrier — left Yangzijiang Shipyard in China on Feb. 3 and will make its way across the Pacific Ocean, through the Panama Canal and Caribbean before heading up the east coast of the U.S. and Canada on the Atlantic Ocean."

Already a little worn due to passage in the Welland Canal;

The Algoma Sault, built in 2017, is the second self-unloading Equinox Class 740-foot bulk carrier. The vessel name pays tribute to the long-standing relationship between Algoma Central Corporation and the City of Sault Ste. Marie and recognizes the important role that marine shipping plays within this community.

From today, the Argentia Desgagnes;


Another new ship from the Algoma fleet, the Algoma Niagara.






Another new ship transiting the canal, the Manitoulin,

The M.V. Manitoulin has been successfully commissioned and delivered.
Following the success of similar programs completed by CSL, Algoma and Klaveness, a new forebody has been affixed to the refurbished aft section of the acquired Danish-flagged vessel Lalandia Swan. The Manitoulin is the first new Canadian-flagged river class self-unloader introduced into service on the Great Lakes in over 40 years. She has the largest lift capacity of any existing Canadian-flagged river class self-unloader.
Lower Lakes Towing's new 25,000 dwt vessel is fitted with an EMS-Tech Inc. engineered self-unloading system rated for 5,500 tph. The self-unloading equipment is comprised of two tunnel conveyors fitted with EMS-Tech patented Feeder Gates, two transfer conveyors, a 19 metre lift 'C' Loop conveyor, and an 80 metre long discharge boom.
