|On November 17, 2005, Kim Storm was alone on a very cold night, taking a picture of the Stellaprima (left) as she approached the unloading dock at the Port Terminal with heavy cargo loaded in Japan. The next day, still very cold and snowy, workers began to discharge the cargo onto waiting railcars for the long trip to Alberta. Kim was back again to take more pictures and over the next couple days, she wrote a song about the whole experience. Five years later, less a couple months, last night in fact, she sang the song again at Amazing Grace in Duluth (inset). She sang other songs, including her song about the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge: Aerial Eye. Here is a link to her CD available on Amazon.|
The Dutch flagged Stellaprima loaded oil sands project cargo in Japan in the summer of 2005 and delivered it to Duluth in November of that year. Kim Storm helped the Duluth Shipping News to photograph the event. She wrote a song about the experience; she is coming to Duluth to sing it at Amazing Grace Café in Canal Park on Wednesday evening at 8 pm. You can listen to the song below.
The Federal Power came into port today through the fog to load distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), a byproduct of the ethanol production process. DDGS is a cargo rarely loaded in the Twin Ports, although this will be the 2nd shipment going out this year. In the US, we produce about 3.2 million tons of it annually and ship about 700,000 tons to Europe where it is used for animal feed. This is the Federal Power’s 3rd visit to the Twin Ports since she was built in 2000; she made two trips here in 2007. When finished, she will take her cargo to Ireland.
