More Steels Under AEC Wings

As part of AEC’s steel program MV Lady Damla, a Japanese Imabari 28,749 Dwt Built 2008 4 x 30.5 mts cranes, loaded a cargo of steel coils in Itaguai, Brazil to Setubal, Portugal.

Each coil is carefully lowered by the vessel’s cranes into the holds and from there moved to the right spot by a specialized steel coil forklift. The steel coils loaded on MV Lady Damla had piece weights of between 12 mts and 23 mts.
