McCarthy arrives behind Pier B 1

The Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. arrived this afternoon (October 19, 2017) around 3:00. She then moved over to Midwest Energy Resources to load coal for Detroit Edison. This is her 21st trip to Duluth. On 20 of those visits, she loaded coal as she is today. After discharging part of this load at the St. Clair power plant, she will go to Consumers Energy’s Karn-Weadock Generating Complex on Saginaw Bay near the mouth of the Saginaw River in Hampton Township, Michigan to discharge 30,000 tons of coal. On August 29, 2017, she was here to load iron ore pellets at BNSF.

    Interesting shot of the McCarthy, Jr., not the usual, like mine, boat portrait. Also, great note on her activities. As always, thanks for sharing.
