The 1969-built, 4,980-grt, oil tanker Enerchem Fusion is seen in this photograph while she was under tow in the St. Lawrence River by the tugs Patricia B. McAllister and Helen M. McAllister on January 3rd, 1991. She had suffered serious bow damage in a grounding accident on July 19, 1990 in the Saguenay River. Photograph by Marc Piche.

She was built in Lauzon, Quebec, Canada by the Davie Shipbuilding Company for the Hall Corporation of Canada and she entered service as Chemical Transport. She sailed for Hall until 1986 when she was sold to Enerchem Transports Inc., Quebec and renamed Enerchem Fusion. Following the hull repairs mentioned above she was sold to the Real Shipping Company and renamed Real Progress. When this picture was added to the archives in 12/2002 she was still listed as operational under this name.
