Record-breaking transshipment of Neopanamax type vessel on the roadstead of Odessa

On the order of Metalloinvest the transshipment of iron ore pellets (IOP) to m/v “Nord Steel” (Flag: Singapore, IMO: 9406518, Neopanamax type) was carried out on the roadstead of Odessa at the end of September. Initially, the ship was loaded onto an acceptable draft of 14.5 meters at the port of Yuzhny. On completion of cargo operations, the m/v “Nord Steel” proceeded to the safe anchorage outside the 12-mile zone, where transshipment complex “Greendale” was moored to load the remaining 44,500 MT of cargo. The gross norm resulted in tremendous 34,000 MT, which made it possible to process the vessel on the roadstead in the shortest time possible.
