42 000 tonnes of Sulphur offloaded at the Port of Walvis Bay
Posted: 9 Sep 2020
The Namibian Ports Authority has yet again added to its historic pages as the Yi Long Shan Vessel docked at the Port of Walvis Bay earlier this month on her maiden visit from the Port of Demark.
While on its maiden call, the vessel offloaded a record breaking of forty two thousand (42,000) tonnes of Sulphur (destined for Swakop Uranium.)
The completion and commissioning of the New Container Terminal at Namibia’s Gateway for international trade to and from the SADC region, gives impetus on the port’s ability to service more and larger international vessels, and the Yi Long Shan Vessel is a magnificent testimony to the importance of the Namibia – Europe Trade Corridor.
In the past the highest Sulphur to be offloaded at the Port of Walvis Bay was 30,000 tonnes.
