Last week the m.v. Amurborg, which was on time charter, transported some rail cars from Antwerp to Quebec. The Railcars are for the expanding rail service of the Charlevoix region for touristic reasons.
The Amurborg is one of the A-type Wagenborg vessels. Measuring 143,00m in length and equipped with two box-shaped holds, this type of vessel has a cargo capacity of 15.750 DWT. The availability of three 60 tonnes deck cranes make this type of vessel perfectly suitable for handling project cargo and break bulk.
