H. Lee White approaches Duluth canal

The H. Lee White was expected in port early this morning on its 4th visit to the Twin Ports this season. It is here to load 28,000 tons of coal for Silver Bay Power. In the picture, it is seen entering the Duluth ship canal on May 27th last year. Despite its short length (704 feet), it has both bow and stern thrusters and a self-unloading system that can discharge cargo up to 6,000 tons per hour. Twenty-three hatches on deck open into six cargo holds below deck, giving it a maximum capacity of 35,200 tons.
