Cargo here via Bavaria

Above, the Bavaria was here in April discharging wind turbine blades at the Port Terminal. Late this morning, we expect the BBC Shanghai to come into port with similar blades resting on the deck. It is worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood.

Bavaria discharges wind turbine blades

bavaria250413-2-067
The first turbine blade is discharged from the Bavaria yesterday at the port terminal (above). Cranes from the ship slowly lowered the blades onto waiting trucks. The blades will next go to Canada for use on wind turbine towers (windmills). The Bavaria should finish up late this afternoon and will depart through the Duluth piers shortly thereafter.

Bavaria brings wind turbine blades

The German flagged Bavaria always brings interesting cargo to Duluth. Today, it is windmill blades for Canada, although I am supposed to call them wind turbine blades.
