Ships Going Through Duluth Carry Record Amount Of Wind Energy Supplies During 2019-2020 Season

Cargo volume exceeded 33.5 million short tons at the Port of Duluth-Superior for the 2019 shipping season, ranking as the port’s third-highest throughput since 2015, according to a news release from the Duluth Seaway Port Authority.

Four of the port’s six cargo categories notched season-over-season tonnage gains.

Eighty-five ocean-going vessels visited Duluth. While iron ore cargo was slightly down, the authority said that ships hauled a record number of wind energy supplies, with more wind energy shipments already scheduled for the upcoming season.

A total of 306,000 freight tons of wind energy cargo was delivered to the Clure Marine Terminal last year.
