American Integrity at Midwest Energy

Three boats will be here today to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. They have 4 more on Friday, and another 3 on Saturday. So far, Sunday is a day of rest, as was yesterday. That is almost half a million tons of coal that will be shipped out of Superior in the next three days, going to Muskegon, St. Clair and Marquette in Michigan, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Nanticoke, Ontario. Above, you see the American Integrity loading coal at Midwest in September, 2004. The coal pile is obvious. One of the trains that brings coal in daily from Montana and Wyoming is on the track between the boat and the coal pile. The track encircles the coal.
