BBC vessel tours Africa for infrastructure deliveries

BBC Oder calls Liberia, Benin, Nigeria, Angola, Tanzania and Kenya

April 2014 – The BBC Oder has accomplished a remarkable Africa tour. The vessel loaded infrastructure equipment in Rostock and Rotterdam in February and set course for six destinations in the sub Sahara part of Africa.

The first destination on this voyage was Buchanan, Liberia to deliver civil construction cranes. The next destination was Contonou, Benin and brought a mobile harbor crane to improve port infrastructure. Just a few miles East in Lagos, Nigeria the vessel delivered two Patrol Boats. Further South in Luanda, Angola the ship unloaded some offshore equipment. Moving on to East coast destinations, the BBC Oder called Mtwara, Tanzania for a pipe delivery and finally Mombasa in Kenya to deliver power plant equipment.

The BBC Oder is a versatile heavy lift vessel with 500mt combined lifting capacity and a cargo intake of 17,000 dwt. BBC Chartering operates seven vessels of this type.
