Alpena enters Duluth with cement

The Lithuanian flagged Kapitonas Stulpinas was expected to arrive off the Duluth piers late last night, dropping anchor and waiting to come in to load grain. The Alpena came in last night with cement and the Canadian flagged Quebecois should be here this morning with another cargo of cement. The Alpena discharges cement at the LaFarge terminal in Superior; the Quebecois at St Lawrence Cement in Duluth. Above, the Alpena is coming in with cement in August, 2006. The Presque Isle loaded limestone in Port Dolomite, Michigan and arrived early Friday afternoon to discharge that cargo here before moving to Two Harbors to load taconite for Conneaut.
