Browse Pinney Dock, Ashtabula, OH


Pinney Dock in Ashtabula, Ohio is a modern coal transshipping facility located on Lake Erie. It serves as a transload point for coals destined to electric generating utilities and cement producers in Canada and the Great Lakes Basins.  Three fully dredged slips and six docks totaling 15,000 linear feet of vessel berth space.

Bituminous coals from Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia origins arrive at Pinney Dock in unit trains where it is then rotary dumped from the rail cars and either stored on the ground or loaded directly into self-unloading vessels for further shipment to Canadian and domestic destinations.

Group storage is available for up to 7 million tons, thus permitting year-round dumping. This allows producers to ship coal during the winter months when the lakes are closed.
