The Dutch flagged Volgaborg arrived Duluth on August 31, 2014 on her way to load grain at Gavilon in Superior while the Vista Queen passed behind her. The Volgaborg was built in 2013 and made 3 trips here that first year. She loaded beet pulp pellets at GM, on her first trip last summer, bentonite at Hallett #5 on the second trip and grain on the 3rd trip. She was also here in June this year to load more beet pulp pellets. This is a new design for Wagenborg Shipping in The Netherlands. Most salt water ships are rounded in the stern; this boat is built more like a barge, with a modified bow to cut through large waves on the oceans.
