Beluga Constitution under the crane

Above, longshoremen at Lake Superior Warehousing Company spent a long Saturday at the Port Terminal discharging wind turbine parts brought here from Spain by the Beluga Constitution (above). That ship was here about 6 weeks ago with the same cargo. On that trip, after discharging its cargo, it loaded wind turbine parts from North Dakota and took them back to Spain, a highly unusual chain of events. Today, the ship will be acting more like normal, moving over to the AGP elevator next door to load grain on Monday to take to Dunkirk, France, a city just across the English Channel from Great Britain.
