Pilot’s-eye view of approach to Puerto Nuevo, Colombia


Last August we wrote about a new coal facility at Puerto Neuvo in Colombia. Thanks to new video and images you can see the berth in operation.

The vessel shown is the Casta Diva, a 178,000DWT bulk carrier, as she berths alongside Prodeco’s latest direct-loading facility. Prodeco is part of the international mining corporation Glencore Xstrata.

A total of 26 QCN 1600 Cone Fender systems and 33 QPA 500 × 3000 Arch Fenders were installed.
