On 19 March, the first Suezmax tanker ever to dock in Rotterdam’s Third Petroleum Harbour called at Odfjell Terminals. Never before had a ship of this class entered this part of the harbour. The Princimar Grace unloaded an oil product to be distilled at Odfjell. The terminal is the only independent facility in Port of Rotterdam to have such an installation.
The Princimar Grace is a tanker of nearly 275m length and width of over 48m. In order to accommodate its arrival, Odfjell, in co-operation with the Rotterdam Port Authority, carefully checked whether the petroleum harbour could accept a ship of this size.
