As is, Garfield D is not a viable dock, according to Adolph Ojard, executive director of the port authority.
The dock face has crumbled and collapsed into the water in places. The project would involve installing new sheet piling and proper infill. It would also require extensive dredging to restore the slip to seaway depth. Ojard said the port authority has had several discussions with Essar Steel, an Indian company that recently began construction on a facility to produce slab steel near Nashwauk. Duluth could one day be handling 1.5 million tons of slab steel in addition to the iron ore pellets it already handles, potentially doubling the port authority's annual revenues, Ojard said. Duluth is out of dock capacity to accommodate any substantial new business at present, he said. Ojard said it may even prove a suitable site for shipping container traffic, should containerized cargo begin to move on the Great Lakes. Duluth, Minn. Seaway Port Authority Director Adolph Ojard says the world economy has the shipping industry in uncharted territory, but he's hoping for a recovery by the third-quarter of this year. Through October of 2008, we were running ahead of last year, said Adolph Ojard, executive director of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority. But as a national recession took shape, shipments of iron ore pellets dropped off. When it hit, it hit hard, Ojard said of the downturn. Several lakers laid up early this season as a result of diminished demand for iron ore. Ojard noted that not a single pellet was shipped out of Superior during the month of January. Iron ore shipments sank 7 percent from the previous season to 18.4 million tons. Grain was the other surprise, Ojard said. Shipments of grain out of the Twin Ports fell to 1.2 million tons during the most recent season down 61.2 percent from the season before. Ojard said wheat farmers in the Ukraine and Australia enjoyed bumper harvests last year, leading to reduced international demand for American grain. Heading into 2009, Ojard predicted a slow start to the approaching shipping season. There will be ships that dont set sail, including some right here in our harbor, he said. The big unknown, according to Ojard, is the length and depth of the current recession. But Ojard said reduced fuel, commodity and shipping rate costs could all help set the stage for a recovery. Were seeing a complete realignment of cost structures, from raw materials to energy. And reduced costs will hopefully help spur consumption, he said.

"There were some ups and downs during 2011, though the Port of Duluth-Superior ended last year's shipping season on a positive note - topping 37 million short tons," noted Adolph Ojard, executive director of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, "That performance was led by a 17 percent increase in iron ore shipments and strong deliveries of limestone, salt, cement and general cargo."
"While it's too early to speculate on grain, the outlook for 2012 is just as strong if not slightly better," said Ojard.
