Austral Asia Line (AAL) has successfully delivered and discharged two LNG tanks in the Port of San Diego.
The two LNG tanks, weighing 380 tons each, and a main engine weighing 384 tons were discharged in the Port of San Diego. The tanks measured approximately 26 m in length and 8.3 m in width, while the heavier main engine was approximately 12 m long and 5 m wide.
The cargo was loaded on board AAL’s A-Class vessel AAL Singapore in Masan, South Korea in mid June.
AAL Managing Director, Namir Khanbabi, commented: “We are happy to have had a chance to secure this cargo after some strong competition from other carriers. Our vessels are well suited for such heavy cargoes and our Pacific Service offers customers a regular heavy lift liner service. We look forward to more opportunities to carry similar and heavier cargoes into the North American regions.”
