Klaveness Combination Carriers has signed an agreement with Singapore’s South32 Marketing to extend the current contract of affreightment (COA) for shipments of caustic soda to Worsley Alumina, South32’s alumina refinery located in Western Australia.
The COA is extended by three years from January 2019 to December 2021 with two one-year extension options.
“We are proud to continue servicing South32 with our Cabu and Cleanbu combination carriers for another 3-5 years providing the most efficient and environmentally friendly shipping solution for Worsley Alumina’s caustic soda import to Australia. Klaveness/KCC has serviced Worsley with its combination carriers on a continued basis for close to 30 years and we look forward to expand and further strengthen our valued relationship with South32 and Worsley in the years to come,” said KCC’s managing director Engebret Dahm.
Klaveness Combination Carriers currently operates ten vessels with another four on order.
