Indiana's wind recovery

October 21 - The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor has handled its first shipment of windmill blades and towers for more than three years, as cargo traffic picked up on the Great Lakes.

"It appears both domestic and international shipments are continuing to grow at better than forecasted levels," said Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor's port director, Rick Heimann.

The renewable energy cargoes were delivered to the Federal Marine Terminal on Wagenborg's general cargo vessel, Exeborg.

HLPFI reported on October 6, 2014 that cargo traffic on the Great Lakes St Lawrence Seaway System had surpassed 2013 levels, driven by a surge in North American import and export activity.

Tonnage at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor was up 25 percent year-on-year through until the end of August 2014.
