M/V Indiana Harbor

M/V Indiana Harbor



The M/V Indiana Harbor is named in honor of the Great Lakes port of Indiana Harbor, IN.


The M/V Indiana Harbor was built by Bay Shipbuilding Corp at Sturgeon Bay, WI and entered service in July 1979.


The M/V Indiana Harbor is powered by four 3500 HP General Motors Electro Motive Division (EMD) diesel engines. The vessel uses a conveyor system below its cargo holds to transport cargo to a "loop conveyor" system that elevates the cargo to the deck-mounted boom conveyor. For maneuvering in port and restricted waterways, the vessel is equipped with 1,500 HP bow and stern thrusters.


The M/V Indiana Harbor is primarily used for long-haul transport of iron ore pellets and western coal on the Great Lakes.
