LD Ports & Logistics led iron ore fines transhipment operations in Goa, India in a joint-venture with the mining company Fomento from 2007 to 2013, loading capsize and panamaxes under off-shore conditions. LDPL designed, built, and operated 3 Floating Crane Transhipper Units in Goa for the transhipment of 8,000,000 tonnes per annum in a short period of 8 months during the off monsoon season. The third FCTU, MV Miramar, was delivered in September 2011 to sustain exportations improvements in the area. The 3 FCTU were simultaneously used on a single ocean going vessel, demonstrating transhipment rate above 75,000 tonnes per day. Operation was interrupted due to the government ban on iron ore exports in 2013.
