After a stop in Menominee, Michigan to discharge cargo, the Dutch flagged Diezeborg arrived late Friday afternoon (above) to load beet pulp pellets. Built in 2000, this is the 4th trip to the Twin Ports for the ship. It will be delayed in loading cargo because some repairs are needed for damage caused when they encountered very heavy seas on the Atlantic Ocean. Photo taken on May 04, 2007.

After a couple days at anchor off the Duluth piers, the Dutch flagged Diezeborg came into port late Sunday afternoon (above). It is loading beet pulp pellets now and may depart later today. Other salt water ships expected today include the Greenwing, Chios Pride and Federal Hudson. The Kinsman Independent loaded flour from here for Buffalo for many years. The boat was deactivated several years ago, but now has a new life as the Canadian flagged Voyageur Independent. It is expected later today for the first visit under the new name and flag.

The Dutch flagged Diezeborg will be here today to load beet pulp pellets for Spain. The pellets, grown and produced in North Dakota, are used for animal feed. Along with molasses, they are one of the primary by-products after sugar is extracted from sugar beets. Built in 2000, this is only the second time the Diezeborg will be in the Twin Ports. On the first trip, in 2004, it loaded beet pulp pellets for Cork, Ireland.
