Kroonborg under the Aerial Lift Bridge

kroonborg200608-115
The Dutch flagged Kroonborg was expected here very early this morning. It will be loading beet pulp pellets and may complete and depart the port by this evening. The Kroonborg is 428 feet long and was built in 1995. This is only the 4th trip here for the ship, the first since 2001. Yesterday, the BBC India came into port with wind turbine parts to be discharged. A barge called the Primary 1 that is coming here to load wind turbine parts has been delayed by weather and will now have to wait until the BBC India completes discharging its cargo, in 3 or 4 days.
