Built by Collingwood Shipyards, Collingwood, ON as their hull # 206 at a reported cost of $14.5 million (CN); the keel was laid on July 16, 1973 for this Great Lakes self-unloading bulk carrier. She was launched July 24, 1974 and was christened at the shipyard on November 26, 1974 by Mrs. John Rhodes as the Algosoo (2) for the Algoma Central Railway, Marine Division, Sault Ste. Marie, ON. Mrs. Rhodes was the wife of The Honourable John Rhodes, Minister of Transportation and Communication for the Province of Ontario. With the Canadian Government subsidizing the new ships built at Canadian yards, the cost of the Algosoo net of subsidies was approximately $11.8 million (CN). The Algosoo and her slightly newer fleetmate Algolake are considered almost sister ships with their hull designs and machinery being very similar; the main difference being the Algolake having been built with all accommodations and wheelhouse aft. The Algosoo was the last traditional styled laker (straight-decker or self-unloader) built on the Great Lakes.
The Algosoo is powered by two Crossley Pielstick 10PC2V single acting, four stroke cycle V-10 cylinder 4,500 b.h.p. (3,310 KW) diesel engines built by Crossley Premier Engines, Manchester, England; these engines burning intermediate grade 40 fuel. The engines are mounted side-by-side facing forward with the drive shafts feeding into a gear reduction box. From the gear reduction box, the single propeller shaft passes back between the two engines to the stern to a four blade KaMeWa 17-foot (5.18m) diameter controllable pitch propeller in a Kort nozzle. The Algosoo's rated service speed is 15 m.p.h.. She is fitted with a 1,000 h.p. (736 KW) KaMeWa electric drive bow thruster.
The self-unloader's 5 holds are serviced by 23 hatches. The vessel is capable of carrying 32,100 tons (32,614 mt) at a mid summer draft of 29' 00 5/8" (8.855m) and approximately 28,381 tons (28,837 mt) at the new Seaway draft of 26' 06" (8.08m) implemented in 2004. The Algosoo's cubic capacity allows her to carry 28,400 net tons of coal. (Coal is measured in net tons, the equivalents being 25,357 tons or 25,764 mt.) Her self-unloading equipment consists of a 3-belt gravity system with a stern-mounted loop belt elevator feeding a 252-foot (76.81m) discharge boom that can be swung 95 degrees to port or starboard. The designed discharge rate is 5,354 tons (5,440 mt) per hour. The Algosoo's other capacities include 445 tons (452 mt) of fuel oil, 84.6 tons (86 mt) of diesel oil, 88.6 tons (90 mt) of potable water, and 17,631 tons (17,914 mt) of water ballast. Her wheelhouse equipment includes 2 Differential Global Positioning Systems (DGPS), 1 Decca radar, 1 Sperry radar, 1 ECDIS (electronic charts), 1 Sperry Gyro compass, 1 magnetic compass, 2 VHF marine radios, and last but not least, a coffee maker. Safety equipment includes 1 Shepherd boat, 2 - 25 person life rafts, 50 life jackets, 35 survival suits, 36 fire extinguishers, 36 fire fighting stations with hoses and hydrants, 6 fireman's suits, 10 life rings, 12 parachute flares, and 4 rocket line-throwing apparatus
On December 23, 2000 the Algosoo was in collision with the Canadian Coast Guard ice breaker Griffon while being freed from ice near the Toledo Channel in Lake Erie. The Algosoo proceeded to Hamilton, ON arriving December 26, 2000 for repairs to the minor damage and for winter lay up. On April 18, 2002, the vessel received a cargo of coal from the crippled fleetmate Algowood following that vessel's grounding in the St. Marys River near Mission Point in heavy fog on April 15, 2002. The Algowood was freed from her strand on April 17 and moved to the Carbide Dock at Sault Ste. Marie where the cargo transfer took place. The coal was bound for Nanticoke, ON from Superior, WI. Further, on August 11, 2002; a bow thruster failure at Clarkson, ON resulted in the Algosoo sliding over her dropped anchor. Bow damage included dents, gashes, and a couple of small holes. The vessel proceeded to the Verrault Shipyard in Les Mechins, QC for repair (the closest shipyard available at that time). The anchor was replaced later in Hamilton. Then on August 25, 2007, the Algosoo was in contact with the general cargo carrier Beluga Recognition while the latter was exiting Lock 1 of the Welland Canal. The salty is preparing to go to berth while the Algosoo was waiting for the lock. The Algosoo was in transit to Sandusky, OH at the time. Both vessels received only superficial minor damage
Cycle safety youngsters get the chance to scoop top prize.
Cycle safety youngsters get the chance to scoop top prize.
Safety conscious youngsters cycling around Northenden, Brooklands and Baguley during the summer holiday could end up scooping top prizes.
Manchester City Council’s Community Safety Co-ordinator and the neighbourhood policing team have launched a joint initiative to encourage youngsters to wear a cycling helmet when they are out on their bikes.
Police Community Support Officers (PCSO’s) who spot youngsters following simple cycle safety rules, like wearing a helmet, will have their names entered into a prize draw.
The lucky entrants will then have a chance of winning a Nintendo Wii console or enjoying a days off road cycle safety course.
Free bike locks and security marking will also be offered by the PSCO’s during the school holidays.
Councillor Richard Cowell, Manchester City Council’s executive member for the environment, said the aim of the scheme is to encourage and reward good cycling safety.
“We launched the scheme in a joint initiative with the police as a way to address residents concerns about young people not wearing the correct safety equipment.
“The scheme is already proving popular and we hope it will be a great success during the summer.”
Neighbourhood Inspector for Northenden, Debbie Robson, said the competition is a great way for the youngsters in the area to get to know their local PCSO’s and learn more about the importance of road safety.
“Wearing a helmet while out cycling could save a life.
“The Neighbourhood Policing Team at Northenden and our partners are working hard to engage with young people in the area. I am sure from the response so far that this competition will be a success.”
