The new coal terminal at Beira, Mozambique has finally been commissioned for both inward coal receival from rail and outward loading to ship. The terminal's first ocean-going vessel 'Sea Loyalty', on her maiden voyage, has berthed and loaded coking coal for steel mills in Japan.
A colleague of the AM sent through these pictures of Sea Loyalty loading the first export cargo under the quadrant ship loaders on Berth 8. Some coal has been exported using 'skip loading' at a general cargo berth and Coeclerici's 'Bulk Zambesi' has loaded for trans-shipment at Berth 8.
