BBC Plata here for grain

The BBC Plata departed Duluth on Saturday afternoon (above). She spent about 36 hours in port loading grain at the CHS terminal in Superior. It was the ship’s second trip to the Twin Ports. It also loaded grain here last July. The Cason J. Callaway probably has arrived in port with a cargo of limestone. It will likely leave early this afternoon to load iron ore pellets at Two Harbors. A Dutch ship called the Liamare will be making its first trip to the Twin Ports today. It was built in 1999 and is bringing wind turbine parts into port.
