Den, this is a new boat to the Lakes but I don't see any unloading equip. What's up with that.....Matt Bond Muskegon
Hi Matt,I think I have an answer to your question. "Algoma Central Corporation provides dry bulk shipping services to shippers who do not require self-unloading technology."Article: http://www.algonet.com/business-units/domestic-shipping/gearless-bulk-carriers/Artie
She hauls mostly grain and the elevators have their own unloading equipment. She came in for iron ore pellets and the 2 ports she takes that cargo to are ArcelorMittal in Hamilton, Ontario and Quebec City for overseas transshipment. Both of those facilities have bridge crane unloaders with clam shell buckets.
I thought the same thing, for a bulk carrier, built this year one would have thought it would have a self-unloader on it.
