Subic sitrep

Ore Pantanal (179,385 DWT) sailed for Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Vale Brasil and Ore Fabrica are rafted up at anchor off Subic Bay.

Ore Itagaui remains at anchor in the inner Bay and has not yet moved out to receive cargo.

Vale China has arrived at Subic Bay with the another 400,000 tonnes. Ocean Creation (207,000 DWT) is bound for Subic from Japan - possibly the next off-take vessel?

With some commissioning 'teething problems' of Ore Fabrica to be expected, still more ships arriving than leaving...

PS: Thanks for the comment posted anonymously, leading the AM to the website which has hi-res photos of Brasil, Fabrica and Pantanal rafted-up in Subic. The relative size of 'Brasil to 'Pantanal - no lightweight at 180,000 DWT - is amazing.
