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.
