UTILITY VIEW OF COAL SHIPPING

Three methods of transport are described for the shipping of coal to a fossil-fuel power plant in Tampa, Florida. River transport is provided from Kentucky to New Orleans, a transfer company south of New Orleans provides transfer, storage and blending of the coal, finally the coal is shipped by barge across the Gulf of Mexico to Florida. The main concern in choosing a method for transport of coal to utilities is the economics. Rail transport and barge transport are discussed. Utilities support the proposed slurry pipeline to Florida.
