With the sailing of MV Lone Star from the Mississippi River, on the 7th of January 2013, AEC has loaded their first DDGS cargo (Destillers Dried Grains with Solubles). DDGS is a by-product from the corn fermentation process and is used as animal feed.
The cargo of 26,200 mts was loaded alongside the Cooper Consolidated floating rig ‘America’ on MV Lone Star (34,748 dwat Built 2012) moored at CC Mile 179. The cargo is destined for an Eastern Mediterranean port.
MV Lonestar is on time charter from ADM (Archer Daniels Midland Company).
