Mission possible: BBC completes NSR voyage

August / September 2015 – The m/v BBC Louisiana just completed a project with a special trading requirement. Supporting the expansion of the Antipinsky Refinery in Tyumen, Russia (Western Siberia), BBC Chartering was contracted to deliver the engineered transport of the refineries’ continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) modules. Theses had to be shipped from Mokpo, South Korea to Novyy Port, at the mouth of River Ob in the Arctic sea; some additional equipment and containers had to be shipped to Vladivostok, Russia for the same project.

A project of this type requires special preparation, diligent planning of cargo and vessel related items, and the compliance with the special destination’s administrative requirements. Eventually all work led to a smooth passage, a safe voyage and high quality cargo transactions. Loading operations were accomplished by the End of July in South Korea, and the discharge of the four up to 230mt heavy CCR modules was accomplished by the end of August onto river barges. The assigned project carrier m/v BBC Louisiana is one of thirteen 12,780 dwt vessel which possess both a high ice class and a lifting capacity of up to 300mt.

With this BBC Chartering successfully completed another assignment which displays the carrier's ability to respond to very specific transport requirements. Adding to BBC Chartering’s special destination mission track record, the project conveys that all required processes and resources are in place to respond to any port and cargo constellation. This ensures customers the best possible delivery of project specific technical and commercial solutions.
