Peter R. Cresswell departing Duluth

The Peter R. Cresswell is pictured approaching the lift bridge as it was departing the port in March 2008. It is expected to arrive this evening to load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. It has been here only 11 times since 1996, two of those trips came last year. On one of those visits, it loaded iron ore pellets; on the other, coal. This is the Canadian-flagged vessel’s first trip here this season. It was launched in 1982 as the Algowest.
