For the second day in a row a ship has tied up at Pier 9C for bunkers. This time it is the bulk carrier Trabzon.
The ship arrived this morning from La Baie (Port Alfred), QC where it discharged a cargo of bauxite loaded in Kamsar, Guinea. One of word's busiest ports for bauxite, Kamsar has a limit to ships of 229m maximum length (slightly larger than Panamax).
Thus a whole breed of bulkers have been built to that dimension and are are termed "Kamsarmax" , and Trabzon is one.
