Oglebay Norton is now American Integrity

oglebaynorton240710-3-018
The American Integrity should have arrived in port earlier this morning. Formerly called the Oglebay Norton, it is here to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. They will load about 64,000 tons of coal and take it up to Silver Bay Power where it will be used to generate electric power. When they complete discharging that cargo, sometime later today, they will return to the Twin Ports to take on another load of coal tomorrow, this time for Detroit Edison, their usual destination. Above, the boat departed the Twin Ports in July, 2004.
