THUNDER BAY – The Port of Thunder Bay is a busy place lately. Ships from around the world are arriving in the port, loading up with grain from the Prairie provinces, and taking it downbound on the Great Lakes to feed a hungry world.
Tonight, the FEDERAL BERING a Bulk Carrier built in 2015 sailing under the flag of Marshall Islands arrived at the Richardson Elevator in Thunder Bay.
The Federal Bering was guided into the Richardson Elevator by two tugs. With a stiff wind from the north, as the Federal Bering came though the breakwall, it was the task of the tugs to keep the ship inline.
