S.S. Badger Saves Diesel Fuel By Carrying Wind Towers

Broadwind Towers & Heavy Industries has a manufacturing plant in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. It has elected to ship 280 oversized truckloads of wind tower sections (4 tower sections for each of 70 towers) via the Lake Michigan Carferry Service to Ludington and then through to the Thumb area of Michigan. About 300 miles of highway driving (through the U.P. and across the Mackinac Bridge) is saved by using the S.S. Badger in this way. [Transport trucks get about five miles per gallon.] Four sections can be shipped each day, so shipments will continue until late July or early August. The S.S. Badger was originally built to carry 30 railway cars.
