Reiss: (Satellite)Superior: (Satellite)
I remember this dock area from when I studied the steel plant that was a little west of here. The propane transloading is new enough that it doesn't show up yet on the satellite image. I wanted to record that some coal gets shipped from the east to here. Is it anthracite? Generally, Powder River Basin coal gets shipped from this region to the Midwest. The boat in the photo is an old one because it has the pilot house on the bow.
(Update: just the day after I published this, I learned that there is also a C Reiss Coal Dock in Green Bay, WI.)

I wanted to get a shot of the new Superior Fuel propane transload and storage facility at the former Hallett 7 (Carnegie) dock in West Duluth. The Hon. James L. Oberstar is in the distance at C. Reiss unloading eastern coal loaded at Toledo and used locally as blending fuel in biomass plants and for periodic test burns in some of the pellet plants. 9/23/2021
