Neptune breaks record for the largest vessel processing

30 march, 2021

In March 2021, Neptune grain terminal has processed the largest vessel ever – the bulk cargo ship ‘MARIA G.O’ (the flag of the Marshall Islands). 
According to the terminal's press service, the deadweight of the vessel is 87,459 tons, the length – 229 m, the width – 36.8 m. About 74.5 thousand tons of corn were loaded onto the bulk cargo ship. The cargo vessel headed for Eastern Asia.
Thus, in terms of its parameters, the deadweight and workload, ‘MARIA G.O’ vessel has become the largest bulk cargo ship that has been processed by Neptune since the start of its operation in test mode, i.e. from June 2018.
Previously, the bulk cargo ship ‘Star Suzanna’ was considered the largest vessel, which was processed at the terminal. In November 2019, 75.36 thousand tons of corn were loaded on board.
