Under this new contract, 3Maj will complete the vessel with financing provided by the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development and has committed to a delivery date of September 15, 2020. Algoma said it will pay the agreed price of the vessel at delivery, "subject to certain penalties for late delivery, including a cancellation right if delivery is delayed beyond an agreed date."
