MANITOWOC departed the Mountfort Terminal this morning at about 0745 and shifted to the North Pier to unload the first cargo of sand for beach replenishment. MANITOWOC departed Erie at 1245 hours bound for Fairport Harbor to load a cargo of salt.
CSL NIAGARA is currently floating in the graving dock at Donjon Shipbuilding & Repair and due to depart on Saturday.
FEDERAL KUMANO, loaded with three transformers loaded in Antwerp, Belgium, is out of Hamilton and expected to arrive Erie at 1200 on Saturday. I will update with a better arrival time in the morning.
The second load of transformers is expected to arrive on July 16 aboard FEDERAL SHIMANTO.
