Bavaria discharges wind turbine blades

The first turbine blade is discharged from the Bavaria yesterday at the port terminal (above). Cranes from the ship slowly lowered the blades onto waiting trucks. The blades will next go to Canada for use on wind turbine towers (windmills). The Bavaria should finish up late this afternoon and will depart through the Duluth piers shortly thereafter.
