Beluga Formation and cranes

At 6:30 Tuesday morning, longshoremen were already getting their cranes in position at the Port Terminal for the day’s work (above), completing the discharge of wind turbine parts from the Beluga Formation. They were hoping to complete that job by 11 last night. Yesterday was thousand footer day. You will have to get up early today to see one in the Twin Ports. The American Integrity arrived last night around 7 pm and should be departing before the sun comes up. You have to go to Two Harbors today if you want to see a thousand footer although a trip to Silver Bay will allow you to see the American Integrity. It is taking the coal it loaded earlier this morning up there and is expected back from that short trip on Friday to load more coal, this time for Detroit Edison. Three salt water vessels will be arriving to join the Beluga Formation today. Only the Great Lakes Trader will fly a US flag into port today; no Canadians are expected.
