For the second time in August 2016 AEC loads steel pipes. This time on long term chartered vessel MV Bunun Hero at the port of Munda in India. The Bunun Hero is getting used to this kind of cargo having also loaded steel pipes on her maiden voyage from Japan. This time she loaded in excess of 10,000mt coated pipes spread over her 5 box shaped holds.
“You need a box hold vessel to load this kind of cargo efficiently and safely. However, care and efficient coordination with stevedores, as was the case here, is still vitally important” says Jesper Lollesgaard, Chartering Manager in London responsible for Asian markets.
This is the second time that AEC have loaded steel pipes at the port of Mundra in India.
