COASTER: Milestone for Scottish port

On 8 June the coaster Nordica Hav (1982/1,514gt) discharged a shipment of 2,000 tonnes of high quality wheat at Kirkcaldy in Scotland to break the 100,000-tonne barrier of wheat being discharged at the port since its reopening to commercial shipping in 2011. The milestone has been achieved ahead of schedule and has ensured that the Kirkcaldy-based Carr’s Flour has had consistent deliveries of wheat from around the UK and Europe.

The harbour had closed to shipping in 1992 but reopened in 2011, when Hutchison’s Flour Mill were awarded an £800,000 Scottish Government grant to carry out work on new facilities. The 2,299dwt Nordica Hav and her sisterships have been regular visitors to the harbour since its reopening. RC
