|That’s Kirk Teschner high in gantry crane number 1 at Lake Superior Warehousing Company at the Port Terminal on Friday morning. At the other end is a wind turbine hub being lifted out of the S. Pacific. The ship loaded wind turbine parts in Spain. They will be taken from Duluth by truck to wind farms in Iowa and Illinois. They hope to complete discharging the S. Pacific late Saturday. The Beluga Expectation is next. It was expected in port last night and is filled the wind turbine base units. The S. Pacific will go next to General Mills to load beet pulp pellets. Next week, after the base units are discharged, the Beluga Expectation will head for Thunder Bay to load grain.
