bbcontario2008Jun14_2823Through the 2010 season, the BBC Ontario has been to Duluth-Superior three times, in April, 2005 and December, 2007 when she loaded beet pulp pellets at General Mills Duluth and then loaded wind turbine blades from North Dakota. Both cargos were taken to Spain. She was back again in June, 2008 to discharge 11 component wind turbine sets (minus blades) from Siemens in Denmark.
The BBC ships are managed by BBC Chartering & Logistics of Leer, Germany. The names of many ships in their fleet start with BBC. Others beside Ontario are: Africa, Alabama, Asia, California, Denmark, Europe, Peru, North American and many more. I am sure it helps to get business in Peru if you send a ship there call the BBC Peru. It takes a little nerve, in my opinion, to name your ship after a whole continent, or even a whole state for that matter. They have them all covered, though. All, that is, except Duluth.
