04 Dec Euroports Loads, For Export, a Vessel with the Deepest Draft of Any That Have Docked at Its Terminal 1207
At Euroports, we have just completed a major job for a number of our key customers in Antwerp, loading to capacity the MV Salta, GMB Maritime Liner Services GmbH, at our Terminal 1207 at the Left Bank in Antwerp. This vessel has the largest draft of any that Euroports has ever loaded at this terminal. At our terminal, TA 1207, which has a storage capacity of 1 million tonnes, Euroports handles a large range of cargo types, from paper products to steel and other metals, wind turbines, and fruit. The challenge this time was to load 53,000 tonnes of various cargo, with a total volume of 64,000 m3. The loading operation was completed successfully and on time, and GMB’s SV Salta departed for various ports in the Middle East and the Far East, at its maximum draft of 13.9 m.
