Canadian Enterprise departs with coal

The Canadian Enterprise and the Canadian Transport were both built in 1979 to move low sulfur, western coal from the Twin Ports to Ontario power plants in Nanticoke. Both nearly identical boats are loading coal here today. The Enterprise was expected last night and should have departed by now, leaving the dock at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior open for the Transport which is expected later today. The Enterprise is pictured above departing the port with coal last month. Photo taken on August 19, 2008
