Canadian Enterprise in Duluth for coal

The Canadian Enterprise, pictured above coming into port in June, 2006, was expected in port late last night. As it usually does, it will load coal at the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior and then take that cargo to Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. On this trip the boat is bringing a cargo of salt which they will discharge before moving over to the coal dock. The Enterprise was built in 1979 along with a sister ship, the Canadian Transport. Both boats are often at Midwest to load coal for Nanticoke.
