Beluga Constitution captain oversees work

On Sunday afternoon, all the wind turbine parts that Captain Andrzej Kocmiel brought with him on the Beluga Constitution from Spain had been discharged. His cargo holds were empty. On Monday morning he would take his ship to the AGP grain elevator next door to the Port Terminal where he will load peas for Dunkirk, France. Above, he is looking into the cargo hold of his ship on Sunday, watching closely as his crew cleaned the holds and rearranged the panels while converting his ship from a heavy lift equipment ship to a grain ship. He expects to depart Duluth for France this evening and is hoping he gets to the Lift Bridge before everyone goes home. Photo taken on September 2, 2007.
