K Line Group has signed a long-term voyage contract with Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) to carry Bauxite in bulk by capesize vessels.
The first vessel (MV Cape Taweelah) arrived at Port Khalifa, UAE in June from its loading port at Kamsar, Guinea.
Upon her arrival, an inaugural ceremony was held by EGA, where Abdulla Kalban managing director & CEO of EGA, Abdullah Humaid Al Hameli executive vice president of corporate and acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, and Atsuo Asano representative director of K Line celebrated the first arrival of this fully-laden capesize vessel at a GCC port.
EGA is equally-owned by Mubadala Investment Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai, which is the largest industrial company in the UAE outside the oil and gas industry and the largest company jointly owned by the two Emirates.
EGA began production at its new Al Taweelah Alumina refinery in April. Alumina refineries process Bauxite ore into Alumina, the feedstock for Aluminium smelters.
K Line shall provide the safe and competitive service of the seaborne transportation for the customers’ project.
