The self-unloading bulk freighter Algowood was built in 1981 at Collingwood, Ontario and named in honor of the community of Collingwood algowood2008mar23_6400and the shipyard there. She is 730 feet long and has 22 hatches on deck that open into 5 cargo holds below deck. Above the deck, she has a 261 foot self-unloading boom that allows her to unload her own cargo. She is also equipped with a bow thruster that provides maneuverability within harbors and around docks. When in the Twin Ports, she usually loads low sulfur western coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior and takes that cargo to Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke.  Picture above taken Sunday, March 23, 2008
