30 March 2021 | Infrastructure

The provisional port log indicates that 20 vessels are scheduled to call at the Port of Walvis Bay in April.

The visiting ships comprise one fishing vessel, a tug, one bulk carrier, two tankers, three general cargo vessel, two multipurpose vessels, five Roro's and five container vessels.

The tug Boka Pegasus will be the first of these arriving on 1 April, ahead of the tanker Ardmore Seaventure with a length of 184 m and the Roro's Divine Ace and Horizon Leader. Both Roro's are 200m in length.

The container vessel Barrier (150m), the bulk carrier Bold Mariner (168m) and the general cargo carrier Erasmusgracht (137m) will call on 4 April.

The 5th of April promises to be an extra busy day at the port, with the container vessel Safmarine Chambal (294m), the general cargo vessel Cena Faith (122m), the tanker Nave Aquila (183m), the multi purpose vessel Green Mountain (200m) and a fishing vessel Desert Jewel due to arrive.

Erasmusgracht will make a second call on 9 April followed by the multi purpose vessel Bright Sky (200m) on 10 April and the Roro Glovis Symphony (200m) on 13 April.

The container vessels Border (163m), Horizon (155) and MSC Adele (185m) will call on 14, 17 and 20 April respectively.

Two Roro's, Perseus Liberty and Eternal Ace, each with a length of 200, should call on 23 and 27 April respectively.

Port captain Lukas Kufuna issued a memorandum with written instructions on Ebola after the World Health Organisation warned about an outbreak of the disease in Africa.

Kufuna said that the port authority deemed it prudent to implement measures to safeguard local port officials against being exposed to the threat posed by visiting vessels.

The Berth Planning division of Namport also announced that the current Vessel Nomination Advice Form has been revised through the addition of four Addendums which are to be submitted in conjunction with every Vessel Nomination Advice with effect 15 March.

This was done in order to better cater to Namport's Terminal Operating System(s) requirements in terms of Vessel Scheduling, Berth Planning and Vessel Planning.
