Marlene Green is……………green

The Marlene Green arrived in port on Sunday morning at 6:22. A few hours later, it was at the Port Terminal discharging the 40 wind turbine base units it brought here from Indonesia. The Alpena has been in port since it arrived with a cargo of cement on November 11. It has spent much of the time since getting repairs made. This morning, with that accomplished, it first fueled at the Murphy Fuel Dock at the Port Terminal and then left there to complete discharging the cement cargo. It either departed earlier today or soon will. Above, you can see the Alpena moving past the Marlene Green on Sunday morning. This is the first trip here since the Marlene Green was built in 2001. It is 468 feet long, flies a Dutch flag and is green. Photo taken on November 18, 2007
