Algocape enters Duluth ship canal

The Algocape arrived on Wednesday afternoon (above) on its first visit of the season. It went over to the CN dock to load taconite, not its usual cargo. In the 5 or so visits the boat makes to the Twin Ports each year, it more often discharges cement or loads grain. Wind turbines are moving again in Duluth, in both directions. The Beluga Expectation arrived on Wednesday afternoon with wind turbine base units, hubs and nacelles. After discharging that, it will load blades for Spain. The tug Gregory J. Busch is still loading base units here for Buffalo. The Chinese operated and crewed Gadwall will be arriving here for its second visit of the year to load spring wheat for Spain.
