Earlier this month Holcim’s cement tankers made what were supposed to be their last visits to Onehunga. The Milburn Carrier II departed but MV Westport remained. The plan was for her to be laid up until sold. After a few days she sailed again and BEACON BHB was surprised that the ship may have been sold so quickly.
BEACON asked Holcim CHC HQ what had happened and we were advised by Robyn:
“As those involved in shipping know - never say never!
The MV Westport ended up taking another load from Westport and is due to leave there at 5.00pm Wednesday (tomorrow) and we're looking at arrival back in Onehunga on [UPDATED] Saturday 2 July 9.30am, weather permitting. But this could change!”
Apparently they found a bit more cement.
