Vale unable to tranship at Subic during heavy rains

Manila: The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) will suspend Vale’s iron ore transhipment operations during any strong rains. The decision follows complaints from residents in nearby Olongapo City who noticed spillage and water discolouration in Subic Bay during recent stormy weather.

SBMA chairman Roberto Garcia said the agency had investigated the iron ore spillage from a Vale feeder vessel following complaints made on July 25.  [04/08/14]
