HHL Amazon arrived Duluth to load grain.

2016-0827-8108
The HHL Amazon was built as the Beluga Fairy in 2009. She came here with that name on September 12, 2010 to load grain. She was sold, renamed to HHL Amazon, repainted and arrived here on June 21, 2012 with wind turbine nacelles she loaded in Spain that were later sent to Montana by truck. She came under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge today (above, August 27, 2016) to load grain.

Active at the Port Terminal

On Friday, June 22, 2012, the HHL Amazon (left) was discharging wind turbine nacelles and the Edgar B. Speer was in for some repairs. Over by the gantry cranes (unseen at right), the Alamosborg was discharging wind turbine parts. Work at the Port Terminal was halted for one day by the flood; 3 feet of water over much of the warehouse made sure of that. Elsewhere in the port. the water put Midwest Energy Resources in Superior out of commission, perhaps until July. Boats such at the Paul R. Tregurtha and the James R. Barker have been redirected to the CN Dock in West Duluth, just across the St. Louis River from Midwest, to load iron ore pellets instead of coal.
