ESMOC post a ‘perfect fit’ for former Coast Guard officer

Mike served 44 years in the U.S. Coast Guard, with six of those years in the Straits of Mackinac. As the Straits-based Maritime Operations Specialist for Enbridge, Mike calls Michigan home now—and he’s excited to be at the helm of the Enbridge Straits Maritime Operations Center (ESMOC), which monitors shipping traffic in the Straits 24/7. “This was a perfect fit for me. I feel connected, and I get to work with people who are passionately purposeful in taking care of the Straits,” says Mike. “I’ve never seen the extent of efforts to protect a pipeline as I’ve seen here. I fully support the Great Lakes Tunnel Project. It’ll make a safe pipeline safer.”
