From Antwerp to Açu

Earlier this month, BBC Amethyst anchored in Porto do Açu, making it the first vessel to cross from Antwerp to the Brazilian seaport.

The vessel transported a Siemens gas turbine for a thermoelectric power plant developed by Gás Natural Açu (GNA) – a joint venture of BP, Siemens and Prumo, the parent company of Porto do Açu.

The gas turbine was delivered by barge from Mülheim, Germany, to the Katoen Natie terminal in Antwerp, where it was subsequently loaded into the hold of the BBC Amethyst, together with other bulky components.

Since 2017, Port of Antwerp International, a subsidiary of the Antwerp Port Authority, has been a shareholder of and consultant to the port of Açu, with a goal of promoting trade with the Belgian gateway.
