BBC India brought wind turbine parts

Lots of U.S. flagged freighters, most of them 1,000-footers, will be coming and going today. While one salt water ship sits at anchor (Federal Leda), two are in port, one discharging wind turbine parts for Mower County and one loading wheat for Africa (Federal Miramichi). In the picture, a truck starts out from Clure Public Marine Terminal on Thursday morning, pulling an expandable flat bed trailer loaded with one of the almost 150 foot long wind turbine blades on it. It will take the blade to a wind turbine farm in Mower County, Minnesota. You can see the stern of the BBC India sticking up on the right. It brought the blades here from Denmark. Notice the ends of more blades on its deck pointing toward the stern from the right.
