Keizersborg discharging in Duluth

keizersborg2008Sep02_1659
Built in 1996, the Keizersborg is one of the oldest Wagenborg ships to come to Duluth, but it is here today for only the 2nd time. The Dutch flagged ship is 428 feet long and brought the last cargo of wind turbine parts for a while (above). When it completed that discharge, it went over to the Hallett #5 dock to load bentonite for a down bound cargo. It probably departed earlier this morning. Photo taken on September 02, 2008

Keizersborg to arrive late

The Dutch flagged Keizersborg should arrive this evening to load beet pulp pellets. A by-product of sugar beet refining in North Dakota, it is used for animal feed in Spain. Built in 1996, this will be her 4th trip here. She was here twice in 2000 and once in 2001.
