Enbridge Straits Maritime Operations Center: Watching the waters 24/7

The ESMOC became fully operational in the summer of 2020, coordinating an array of marine safety systems in Michigan’s Straits of Mackinac to prevent an anchor strike on our Line 5 dual pipelines while the Great Lakes Tunnel is built. Coordinating wireless and radio communications, high-def camera feeds and weather monitoring equipment, the ESMOC represents a new, unprecedented level of maritime monitoring capability for a commercial company.
