BBC Ontario loading wind turbine blades

Above, the 4th of 10 wind turbine blades is lowered onto a lower deck of the BBC Ontario Monday morning at the Port Terminal. Over the weekend, beet pulp pellets were loaded into the cargo holds below this deck at General Mills. After ten blades were placed here, hatch covers were lowered over it to form the weather or top deck. Twenty one blades were put on the top deck before it departed last night for Spain. Both cargos were loaded in North Dakota and both cargos will be delivered to Spain. The Edward L. Ryerson was delayed in the Detroit area but is now expected to arrive in Duluth sometime later today for winter layup, the first layup arrival of the year. Photo taken on December 03, 2007
