Canadian Enterprise comes in for coal

canadianenterprise230108-10
The Canadian Enterprise is due here today to load low sulfur western coal at the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior. The Enterprise was built in 1979, along with a sister ship, the Canadian Transport, to do just that. They still work that trade, taking coal loaded at Midwest Energy to Ontario Power in Nanticoke. The Canadian Transport will be here later this week to take her turn. Above, the Enterprise comes under the Aerial Lift Bridge on January 8, 2003.
