The Great Lakes Towing Company was contract by KK Integrated Logistics for the barge shipment of windmill towers from Buffalo, New York to Menominee, Mich. 

The Towing Company’s tug Ohio arrived in Buffalo on November 7, where 22 windmill towers were loaded onto the Barge CBC1268.  The tug and barge departed Buffalo on November 12 bound for Menominee, Mich.  The voyage from Buffalo to Menominee is expected to take about four days.  This is the first of what is expected to be four shipments of windmill towers. 

Heavy lift shipping is a very specialized trade often involving the waterborne transportation of extremely heavy and voluminous loads.

Cargoes may range from components for power generation and distribution, such as boilers, turbines, generators, transformers, to large quantities of project cargoes as break bulk required for the construction of industrial plants or facilities.
