Algobay in North Channel
Algobay in North Channel
In 1977, various Canadian fleets including Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario's Algoma Central Corp. were requested to bid on the movement of western coal for Ontario Hydro. Algoma responded quickly to the request also realizing that they would need another self-unloader to handle the extra loads. Algoma's proposal was presented to Ontario Hydro by early March of 1977 knowing they held an option for hull # 213 at Collingwood Shipyards that was due to expire on March 11, hoping for but not expecting a quick response to their proposal. Even though Canada's ship building industry was booming with competition for building berths, Algoma chose to defer its decision on hull # 213 until it received a decision from Ontario Hydro. Later that month, Algoma was awarded a 15 year contract with Ontario Hydro to move 1 million metric tons of coal per year beginning in 1978. Algoma's option at Collingwood was extended and renumbered as hull # 215 and by the end of March, 1977, a contract had been signed for the building of a new self-unloader. The contract was worth $26,138,000 less a 20% federal government shipbuilder's subsidy (which had just been raised from 17%). Of note, hull # 213 defaulted to Canada Steamship Lines who also held the option on Hull # 214, both scheduled to be new self-unloaders. As history unfolded, both contracts were postponed. When CSL made the decision was made to proceed with the buildings, they were assigned new hull numbers by the shipyard, becoming hull # 222 (Atlantic Superior) and hull # 225 (Hon. Paul Martin now sailing as the Atlantic Erie). As a result, the keel was laid for Collingwood Shipyard's hull # 215 on August 16, 1977. Hull # 215, a new self-unloading bulk carrier, was built in 1978 for Algoma Central Corp., Sault Ste. Marie, ON. The new carrier was launched on June 19, 1978 and was christened Algobay by Mrs. Cedric Ritchie, wife of the chairman and president of the Bank Of Nova Scotia on that date at a ceremony at the shipyard. The Algobay was built to a "Nova Scotia Class" classification allowing for the operation of the vessel along the eastern seaboard. The new vessel had an advanced "V" shaped bow to the 24' (7.32m) mark for working in ice, higher horsepower diesels and a greater degree of hull strengthening. The self-unloader was the widest vessel built to date at the shipyard. The Algobay's name was derived from the common corporate naming prefix "Algo" and "bay" honoring the various bays of the Great Lakes but no one in particular. The overall dimensions of the Algobay as originally built were 730' 00" (222.50m) loa x 75' 10" (23.13m) beam x 46' 06" (14.17m) depth. The vessel was originally powered by 2 Pielstick 10PC2-3V-400 V-10 cylinder 5,350 b.h.p. (3,935 kw) diesel engines built by Crossley Premier Engines Ltd., Manchester, UK burning intermediate grade 40 fuel. The power drove a single controllable pitch propeller giving her a rated service speed of 13.8 m.p.h. Her original machinery also included a KaMeWa 1,000 h.p. (746 kw) bow thruster. Serviced by 22 hatches, the vessel's 5 holds were capable of carrying 33,840 tons (34,381 mt) at a mid-summer draft of 32' 08" (9.958m) and approximately 25,945 tons (26,362 mt) at the Seaway draft of 26' 06" (8.08m). These holds had the cubic capacity to handle 30,200 net tons (equivalent to 26,964 tons or 27,397 mt) of coal. Other capacities included 447 tons (454 mt) of fuel oil, 254 tons (258 mt) of diesel oil, 112 tons (114 mt) of potable water and 16,464 tons (16,728 mt) of water ballast. The Algobay displaced 9,050 tons (9,198 mt) lightweight. The self-unloading equipment consisted of a variable speed 3-belt gravity system with bulk flow gates, plastic linings and vibrators throughout feeding to a single loop belt elevator and a stern-mounted 261' (79.55m) discharge boom that can swing 90 degrees to port or starboard and can discharge at a rate of up to 5,354 tons (5,440 mt) per hour. The Algobay sailed on her maiden voyage leaving Collingwood on October 26, 1978 in ballast to Stoneport, MI to load limestone for Sarnia, ON. On November 14, 1978; as the Algobay was leaving Sept Isles, QC for Sydney, NS with a load of iron ore, she was in collision with the 90,000 ton 832' 06" (253.75m) Italian registered ore carrier Cielo Bianco. The tug Pointe Marguerite, which was towing the Cielo Bianco at the time, was crushed between the 2 larger vessels and sunk with the loss of 2 lives. The Algobay then proceeded to Ashtabula, OH for a partial unload and on to Port Arthur Shipbuilding, Thunder Bay, ON for repairs. Late the following year, on December 2, 1979, the self-unloader grounded at Crossover Island on the St. Lawrence River west of Brockville, ON when the steering gear failed. She was pushed out of the shipping channel by a USCG tug but was not freed from her strand until December 4 with the assistance of tugs Robinson Bay, Helen McAllist
