Canadian Olympic here for coal

canadianolympic270111-1-068
The American Integrity arrived Duluth on Wednesday morning to load coal for the Cleveland Cliffs power plant in Silver Bay. It should have departed late last night. It is expected back here today to load coal for the Detroit Edison power plant at St. Clair, Michigan, its usual destination. The James R. Barker also arrived yesterday to load coal. It will take that cargo a little further up the North Shore, discharging at the Minnesota Power plant in Taconite Harbor. It will stay on Lake Superior a little longer than the American Integrity, coming back here to load coal for We-Energies Presque Isle power plant at Marquette. The 730-foot Canadian Olympic should be slipping in to Midwest Energy Resources in Superior between the two 1,000-footers to get a cargo of coal for Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. Above, it is coming into Duluth to load coal on January 11th of this year.
