Beluga Formation unloads to truck

Today is a busy day in the port with a nice variety of boats and cargos. Three thousand footers will be here loading coal, one for Detroit Edison, one for Ontario Power Generation and one for Silver Bay Power. One salt water vessel will depart with grain and one will be arriving. The 730 foot Canadian Progress will be here to load coal. The Beluga Formation has been in port discharging wind turbine parts at the Port Terminal. Above, on Tuesday morning, the port’s two gantry cranes are slowly moving a base section from the ship’s cargo hold to a waiting truck. The base unit will eventually be taken by truck to a wind farm in North Dakota. Photo taken on October 02, 2007.
