Duluth looks to wind energy cargoes

BigLift Shipping’s vessel Happy River has called at the port of Duluth’s Clure Public marine terminal in the USA to offload wind energy components.

Duluth offloaded 90 m-long towers using its 90-ton (81-tonne) capacity gantry cranes and a 300-ton (272-tonne) mobile crane.

“Our port is a key player in wind energy development worldwide, with a significant percentage of the wind cargoes on the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway moving through the port of Duluth-Superior,” said Jonathan Lamb, president of Duluth Cargo Connect.

He added that the port is looking ahead to a busy season and cargoes from the wind energy industry will contribute to the activity, with multiple deliveries to wind farm sites throughout the Upper Midwest.
