The Namibian Ports Authority on Saturday welcomed the CMA CGM Nabucco and the Ulsan vessels at its New Container Terminal.
The 334m CMA CGM Nabucco and 258m Ulsan are first timers in Namibian waters and recorded a total of 492 and 1000 moves done on each vessel respectively.
The CMA CGM Nabucco, which is headed to Singapore, discharged import cargo and is expected to return to the Port of Walvis Bay early September 2021. The next Port of call for Ulsan is Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
In the past four (4) months ending July 2021, the Ports Authority recorded 265 vessels docked at the Port of Walvis versus 239 in the same period in 2020.
The above records is evident of the fact that the Namibian Ports Authority continuously stride in attaining its vision of becoming the Port of choice for seaborne clients.
The Ports Authority’s investment in world class equipment such as the construction of the New Container Terminal as well as the acquiring of the four state of the art ship to shore cranes are yielding the desired fruits.
The Namibian Ports Authority remains committed to its promise of providing world-class port services to all seaborne trade by offering excellent customer service to its clientele.
