|The tug-barge Joseph H. Thompson came in the Superior entry last night (September 28, 2011) at 10:32. The barge has a long and interesting history but the tug did the good stuff today. After pushing the barge next to the Graymont Dock to discharge limestone, the tug disengaged from the barge and went over to get fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock. That finished, she returned to her other half, reconnected and after the discharge was completed, departed Graymont and moved up the St. Louis River early this morning and made her turn into the CN dock to load iron ore pellets.|
|Across the river, you see the sprinklers at Midwest Energy Corporation keeping the coal dust down. The start of their dock is at the left side of the picture. With gale warnings for Lake Superior, she may be in town a while even after her cargo holds are loaded. (Click pics for larger images and about the vessel.)|
Lakers damaged in Duluth-Superior harbor collision
Two lakers were damaged early Saturday morning when one hit the other in the Duluth-Superior Harbor, according to Adele Yorde, public relations manager for the Duluth Seaway Port Authority. The Indiana Harbor was docked and loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources Co. and the Cason J. Callaway was loaded with iron ore and leaving the CN dock when they hit around 2 a.m., Yorde said. The Callaway was repaired at the Port Terminal and able to leave on Sunday. The Indiana Harbor is still docked in Superior where it is being repaired.
|The Indiana Harbor is currently undergoing repairs at the Lakehead Pipeline Dock in Superior and is scheduled to move over to the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock to load coal on Friday, September 23rd. If that happens, she would be departing Friday evening; in other words; she will continue where she left off when she was hit by the Callaway while at the Midwest Energy dock last weekend.
Cason J. Callaway left Duluth for Gary to discharge iron ore pellets at 2342 Sunday night, September 18. She is expected to then go to Sturgeon Bay for repairs.
|If you visit the Columbus while she is in town today (September 14, 2011), you will notice she is in a cage. Not sure whether we are being protected from them or are they being protected from us. If the latter, it seems to have worked.|
