Algonorth departing Twin Ports

The Algonorth will be here for the first time since it arrived here on December 18th, 2005. It has been here 18 times since 1996. In the picture above, it is leaving Duluth in June, 2004. It will be loading grain while here. Two ships owned by Wagenborg Shipping in the Netherlands will be here today. One, the Americaborg, is making its 2nd visit here; the first was just this past August when it loaded spring wheat for Spain. It will do the same thing today. The Dongeborg will be here for the first time despite the fact it is one of the older Wagenborg ships, built in 1999. It will be loading beet pulp pellets for Spain.
