The Yi Long Shan Vessel docked at the Port of Walvis Bay


The Namibian Ports Authority has yet again added to its historic pages as the Yi Long Shan Vessel docked at the Port of Walvis Bay earlier this month on her maiden visit from the Port of Demark. 

While on its maiden call, the vessel offloaded a record breaking of forty two thousand (42,000) tons of Sulphur (destined for Swakop Uranium.) Namport’s unrivalled skilled and experienced workforce worked hard during the operation while providing unmatched customer experience during her time spend alongside berth number three (3).

The completion and commissioning of the New Container Terminal at Namibia’s Gateway for international trade to and from the SADC region, gives impetus on the port’s ability to service more and larger international vessels, and the Yi Long Shan Vessel is a magnificent testimony to the importance of the Namibia - Europe Trade Corridor.

In the past the highest Sulphur to be offloaded at the Port of Walvis Bay was 30,000 tons.

At Namport we remain grateful to the deep rooted relations with all our clients and stakeholders, and this great milestone is an indication to that.
