Ship’s trading operations
The authority stated – according to a statement Friday – that this operation is the first of its kind in supplying the ship in parallel with the movement of the cranes and the unloading operations while mooring at the quay.
It indicated that the giant container ship CMA CGM MUMBAI was supplied with about 1,750 tons of fuel by the floating supply KYTHIRA of the Minerva company, and the ship’s supply service took approximately 8 hours at the port, while taking all environmental safety and security measures and applying the technical standards followed according to the Egyptian and international codes.
