The first vessel of the 2018 shipping season has arrived at the Port of Hamilton! The beautiful Algoma Equinox was the first of the season, carrying cargo of approx. 27,000 MT iron ore pellets for delivery to ArcelorMittal Dofasco.
The vessel was loaded at Two Harbors last season, and overwintered in Thunder Bay. The vessel departed Thunder Bay on Monday March 26th, and arrived in Hamilton on Friday, March 30. It was recorded passing through the shipping canal into Hamilton Harbour at 4:29 pm.
Zak D. from Hamilton is our contest winner; his guess was within two hours of the ship’s arrival — not too shabby!
Our winner took home a fabulous prize pack of Hamilton goodies from the Hamilton Store!
