Two large container ships on maiden call to Walvis Bay

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 Ulsan 258m 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 dis-charged import cargo and is expected to return to the Port of Walvis Bay early September 2021. The next Port of call for Ulsan is the Port of Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), South Africa.
In the past four months ending July 2021, the Ports Authority recorded 265 vessels that docked at the Port of Walvis Bay, versus 239 in the same period in 2020.
The above records are 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 com-mitted to its promise of providing world-class port services to all seaborne trade by offering excellent customer service to its clientele.
