Emirates Global Aluminium announced that the first Capesize vessel has sailed from its bauxite mining subsidiary Guinea Alumina Corporation in the Republic of Guinea. The vessel, the MV Berge Rosa operated by shipping line Berge Bulk, is bound for a customer in India laden with 173,000 tonnes of bauxite ore.

GAC’s port is at Kamsar is on the river Nunez, 17 kilometres from the open sea. EGA signed a long-term logistics agreement last year with Louis Dreyfus Ports Limited and Abu Dhabi Ports Company, who established a joint venture to develop a barging and transshipment service in deeper waters offshore Kamsar. This enables bauxite to be transferred to Capesize vessels for ocean shipping.
