Project Name: Transshipment : Coal, Colombia
Range of activity: Transshipment
Location : Colombia
LD Ports & Logistics was the first Colombian operator for offshore coal transhipment back in 1992, operating in Santa Marta for 20 years. LDPL worked with major mining companies such as Glencore, Prodeco and Vale to operate and manage a fleet of 8 floating cranes, handling about 15 million tonnes of coal per annum to sustain Colombian coal export. Specific ocean going mooring systems were implemented to allow the off-shore loading of capsizes. Transhipment operations stopped in 2013 when the government enforced a law for mining companies to build a deep sea port.
