Tom Price

Mrs Kulkarni asked for some more photos of the ore carrier 'Tom Price'. The AM saw her in Japan recently, when she was about one month from delivery to her Owners, MOL. She has been chartered to an Australian mining company and will trade between the Pilbara and North Asia.

Tom Price is an ore carrier design, optimized to lift the maximum cargo (230,000 tonnes) at the drafts at the ports of Port Hedland, Dampier and Port Walcott. Her sister ship, Pilbara Maru, is under construction and will follow her into service later this year.

  1. Wow, thanks for the information. My husband is already in Japan and all set to take the ship on sea. Frankly don’t understand the technicalities about ship. Just wish about his safe stay on M V Tom Price.
    Thanks again :-)
