Wind shipment breezes into Duluth

September 1 - Hansa Heavy Lift's vessel HHL Tyne has arrived at the Port of Duluth's Clure Public Marine Terminal carrying wind turbine components for the Thunder Spirit wind farm in North Dakota.

31 wind turbine blades, as well as nacelles, were loaded onboard HHL Tyne in Castellon, Spain and arrived at Duluth via the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway.

This is the fifth of seven shipments of Nordex wind energy equipment for the 107 MW farm to be offloaded at the Port of Duluth this summer, before being transported overland to Hettinger, North Dakota.

The wind energy project, under construction by Allete Clean Energy (ACE), will consist of 43 wind turbines and is scheduled for completion by December 2015.
