The Federal Asahi came in from the anchorage on Tuesday afternoon, September 29, 2015 to load grain at CHS 2 in Superior. This is her 7th visit to Duluth Superior since she was built in 2000 and her second trip this season; she was also here in May. Once in the harbor, she passed the Indiana Harbor, on her way out with 68,000 tons of  coal loaded at Midwest Energy Resources for the Detroit Edison power plant in St. Clair, Michigan.

Seven boats should be arriving in the port today. Three of them will likely finish their work here and depart later in the day. The Hong Kong flagged Federal Asahi will be here today to load grain. It was here in April, 2000 at the end of its maiden voyage, sailing here from Japan where the vessel was built. It returned one more time that year, and was back once in 2002 and again in 2004. This will be the 5th visit the ship has made to the Twin Ports. Photo taken April 12, 2000
