BBC India discharging with crane assist

Last September, the Federal Leda was here loading flax for Northern Europe. This year, it will load about 21,600 tons of taconite at Burlington Northern in Superior, only the 3rd ship to ever load taconite there, all this year. That cargo will go to Algeria. The BBC India came in here as a heavy cargo ship (above). It discharged that cargo (wind turbine parts from Denmark) and will now load grain at CHS in Superior. Both ships represent new trading patterns for salt water vessels coming to the Twin Ports.
