The K Line Group has begun a long-term voyage contract with Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) to carry bulk Bauxite using Capesize vessels.
The first vessel, MV CAPE TAWEELAH, arrived at Khalifa Port in the UAE on 23 June 2019 from the loading port at Kamsar in Guinea.
Upon arrival of the fully laden vessel in Khalifa, an inauguration ceremony was held by EGA, which began production at its new Al Taweelah Alumina refinery in April.
The ceremony was attended by Mr Abdulla Kalban, managing director and CEO of EGA, Mr Abdullah Humaid Al Hamel, executive vice president of Corporate and acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, Mr Atsuo Asano, representative director of K Line, and many other dignitaries.
EGA is co-owned by Mubadala Investment Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai, which is the largest industrial company in UAE outside the oil and gas industry, and the largest company jointly owned by the two Emirates.
K Line said it will provide a safe and competitive service for the seaborne transport for its customers’ cargoes.
