During construction, Nantong Mingde Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. in Nantong City, China went out of buisness. Algoma acquired the Conveyor auction from the failed shipyard in 2017. The ship was then tanken to Jiangsu New Yangzijiang Shipbuilding in Jiangsu, China for refurbishment and final construction. The Algoma Conveyor is expected to be completed and delivered in early 2019.
