BBC Rosario with wind turbine pieces

bbcrosario2008Jun30_5034
The BBC Rosario was expected to complete discharging its cargo of wind turbine pieces last night. It has likely departed the port and the Marlene Green should be beginning to discharge its cargo of wind turbine base units this morning. Above, the port gantry crane has just lowered a wind turbine base unit from the deck of the BBC Rosario onto the truck on Monday evening. The truck is taking the piece to a laydown area in another part of the Port Terminal. Just above the cab on the truck, you can see the BBC Rosario’s hatch cover open so the crane can pull the pieces from the ship’s cargo hold.
