Federal Danube with steel coils

The Federal Danube is due here this evening with a cargo of steel coils to discharge at the Port Terminal before going to the Hallett Dock to load bentonite for Gdansk, Poland. The ship arrived in Montreal on April 28th, going into the Seaway to discharge coils at Burns Harbor before coming to Duluth to discharge the remaining coils. The Federal Danube includes sailors from Poland, Russia and the Philippines. The captain coming into the port was from Poland. He will be relieved by another captain from Poland who will be arriving by plane later today. Above, the Federal Danube is seen entering the Duluth ship canal in September, 2007.
