Two Canadian boats arrive in Duluth

Atlantic Erie arrived Duluth to load coal; passes the Canadian Navigator on the way
On Sunday night, June 5th, 2011, the Atlantic Erie (above) came under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge and made her turn up the Duluth inner harbor to the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior. She is loading 30,000 tons of coal for Belledune, New Brunswick, a port on the Atlantic Ocean. She is about to pass the Algoma Navigator, (below), formerly known as the Canadian Navigator. She actually arrived 11 minutes earlier. The Navigator was on her way to Burlington Northern in Superior to load iron ore pellets.

Recently, Algoma Central purchased the fleet of the Upper Lakes Group Inc.  Most of those boats have been renamed, as with the Navigator. To my knowledge, this is the first trip to the Twin Ports by one of their new vessels that has the new name on the boat.
