Sandviken in the Duluth shipping canal

After a stop in Chicago to discharge general cargo, the Sandviken should be arriving today to load grain. The Sandviken is Norwegian owned. Viken in Norwegian means Bay. Sandviken is a location just outside Bergen, Norway, the home office of the owner, Viken Shipping. Other ships owned by them that also come to Duluth are the Daviken, Goviken, Inviken and Utviken. Above, the Sandviken enters the Duluth ship canal in August, 2001. This is the first trip here for the ship since August, 2003.
