Port of Indiana Welcomes First Ship of The Season

Monday, March 28, 2011

PORTAGE, Ind. – The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor welcomes the first ship of the 2011 international shipping season with a ceremony on Tuesday, March 29, at noon, local time.

A small group of invited guests and media will board the M/V Avonborg for a brief ceremony and a presentation of gifts to the ship’s captain.

The Avonborg was the first ship through the St. Lambert lock in Québec, Canada, as the St. Lawrence Seaway opened its 53rd shipping season on March 22. The vessel carries 75 of the longest wind turbine blades in existence in North America on their journey from Denmark to a Horizon Wind Energy project in Payne, Ohio.

Media should contact the Ports of Indiana for port access and a photo ID will be required.
