The Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation indicated today that the vessel, the IMKE, that ran aground on August 8 near the Port of Ogdensburg has since been secured at the pier.  The cargo of wind turbine components has been offloaded at the Port.  Due to damage sustained by the vessel, a tug will be towing it to Quebec City, getting underway today and transiting through the Seaway locks.
