BULK CARGO: Newport News to Newcastle

On 29 September 2012 the Panamax bulk carrier Nereid (2001, ex-Galatea) arrived on the Tyne after a voyage across the Atlantic from Newport News, Virginia with 70,000 tonnes of coal. Several large bulk carriers have brought coal to the Tyne recently, but this voyage was unusual in that it was the vessel’s last loaded voyage under this name. After unloading, the 74,295dwt vessel sailed from the Tyne on 3 October for Vlissingen, where she was renamed Panamax Nereid, and then departed for Norfolk, Virginia, where she was due on 24 October.
