BBC Maine brings wind turbine parts

Wind turbine parts have been coming into the port since the Moezelborg arrived on July 26, 2004. Many of those parts, including the blades, were built by Siemens in Denmark. The BBC Maine is here today with more wind turbine parts from Siemens but no blades. The blades for this project will be manufactured at a Siemens plant in Fort Madison, Iowa. The final destination for the parts discharged here is a wind farm at Adair, Iowa. Above, the BBC Maine is seen arriving in Duluth on Tuesday morning. The pieces on the deck of the ship are wind turbine base units that are used for the tower on the wind turbine. Photo taken on September 16, 2008
