Special destination service for `Hope Bay`

November 2015 - The Hope Bay Project is one of the most prospective undeveloped greenstone belts in the world, located in the Nunavut Territory, approximately 685 km northwest of Yellowknife, and 125 km southwest of Cambridge Bay. ‘Hope Bay’ is an 80 kilometer district in the Canadian Arctic in the Kitikmeot Region of Canada.

BBC Chartering was the assigned carrier to deliver a transport solution responding to the destination’s special requirements in the Canadian Arctic in September 2015.
The cargo consisted of building material and equipment for the Hope Bay gold mine and it was delivered safely and within schedule by the m/v BBC Brisbane. The project successfully  demonstrated BBC Chartering's ability to prepare and perform on special destination projects and adds to the carrier’s extensive Artic and Ant-Arctic project track record.

The deployed BBC Brisbane is a 2012 built 8,000dwt multipurpose and general cargo ship. She provides a high ice class and a maximum lifting capacity of 160mt. BBC Chartering currently operates six vessels of this type.
