Federal Danube discharges steel coils

The Federal Danube came into port at 6:13 on Sunday morning and went straight to the Port Terminal to discharge steel coils (above). Just to the left of the ship, you may be able to make out the field of white tubes across the slip from the ship. They are the wind turbine parts that have been discharged from several ships this year. They are waiting to be transported to a wind farm in Iowa. The American Integrity is probably here loading coal for Consumers Energy in Muskegon, Michigan. It should be departing around noon, the same time that the Kaye E. Barker is expected here to load iron ore pellets.
