Beluga Elegance unloading

The German owned Beluga Elegance came into port Thursday morning at 8:45 with a cargo of wind turbine base units and nacelles. A sister ship, the Beluga Expectation, brought a similar cargo here a couple weeks ago, and another sister, the Beluga Constitution, will be here next week with more wind turbine parts. All of these pieces were loaded at the Spanish port of Bilbao. The parts will be taken to the Tatanka wind farm in McPherson County in South Dakota. Photo taken on August 24, 2007.
