The Atlanticborg arrived Duluth on July 8, 2012 with a cargo of wind turbine blades loaded in Denmark. After discharging them at the Port Terminal (above and below), the blades were transferred by truck to a Minnesota Power wind farm in North Dakota.

  1. Saw her on 7/21/12 at 10:46 in the St Lawrence Seaway. Downbound at Alexandria Bay NY. Couldn’t find her in the Know Your Ships book. Had to google for the info. She’s so new she came out after the printing.
