Interim Measures in Place – February 10, 2017
Arrium has successfully implemented interim measures at its transhipping operations, now loading a number of vessels since last month’s barge fire.
Residents may have noticed a greater number of vessels on the horizon in recent weeks, which is a reflection of these interim measures – resulting in a larger number of smaller vessels (Handymax and Supramax) being loaded, as well as the usual Cape-sized vessels.
These interim measures are expected to be in place throughout February, with the barge repairs scheduled for completion in early March. All repairs are being undertaken by local contractors. Arrium would like to thank the many employees and contractors who have risen to the challenge throughout recent weeks to ensure that the repairs can be completed safely while minimising the impact on the business
