Flinterland gets assist from cranes 1 & 2

A lot of boats arrived in Duluth yesterday and that means a lot of boats will be departing Duluth today. The Dutch flagged Flinterland is one of those boats. It arrived at sunrise on Wednesday and began to load wind turbine blades for Brazil at 8 am. Above, you see the Port Terminal’s two gantry cranes loading one blade into the cargo hold of the ship while a truck brings the next blade to be loaded into position. The last blades will be loaded onto the deck of the ship and that will make for a pretty picture when it departs, probably later today. Photo taken on August 27, 2008
