Two salt water ships at the Port Terminal

That’s the Asiaborg on the left, tied up at berth 2 at the Port Terminal. It has been waiting for the BBC Elbe (right) to complete discharging wind turbine pieces at berth 1. That happened late Friday afternoon when the BBC Elbe moved out of the slip on its way to get fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock right around the corner. It probably departed the port early this morning. The plan was for the Asiaborg to move up to the position just vacated by the BBC Elbe. Discharge of that cargo, also wind turbine pieces, began early this morning.
