Recently, a so-called Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system was installed in the oldest Wagenborg tugboat 'Waterpoort' - built in 1962 and equipped with an old Stork Werkspoor engine. With this catalytic converter behind the engine, exhaust gases are treated, so that nitrogen (NOx) is captured.
Nobody could have predicted how turbulent the past months would be. So many otherwise stable factors have become disrupted, leading to uncertainty which can easily become paralysing. But that is our worst-case scenario. We need to move on, building on our assets and on our abilities. In close cooperation with customers, suppliers and our Wagenborg family we once again will overcome this tough period. As we move into 2021 and hope for better times, here is a look back on some stories that moved our company last year.
Recently, about 1.750 tons of wheat was discharged from the MV Douwent at the Wagenborg Bulk Terminal for Royal Koopmans under agency of Wagenborg. The cargo will be stored temporarily at the Bulk Terminal and be transshipped to the city of Leeuwarden into inland vessels in a couple of months.
Recently, the MV Adrienne arrived in the port of Delfzijl under agency of Wagenborg to load salt for Wilmington. Upon arrival, the bulk carrier received port assistance of two 60 tBP Wagenborg tugs to safely berth at the quay side.
Wagenborg has expanded her agency services to the port of Terneuzen in the Netherlands. With Wagenborg’s leading position in the shipping and logistics market, the expansion of agency services to Terneuzen is a valuable addition to Wagenborg’s network of serviced ports. Last week, the Holmen Carrier MV Exporter and Wagenborg's MV Bothniaborg called this port under the agency of Wagenborg Agencies Terneuzen.
Despite all Corona measures, activities at the Wagenborg terminals are up and running. For example, this week the MV Helenic was discharged and the MV hydra was loaded by Wagenborg Stevedoring in the port of Delfzijl. Both vessels under agency of Wagenborg.
