If the 400,000-ton Valemax vessels are allowed to Chinese ports, Vale's monopoly on the route may result in losses for other shipping companies operating capesize ore carriers. We assume our usual size definitions for the dry bulk sector, clearly shown on the next slide (page 5). [97], On 7 September 2013, Vale Indonesia ran aground on a sandbar about 40 nautical miles (74 km; 46 mi) north of São Luís. [33][47], The first STX-built Valemax vessel, Vale Beijing, was delivered by STX Jinhae on 27 September 2011. Valemax ships are the largest bulk carriers ever constructed, when measuring deadweight tonnage or length overall, and are amongst the longest ships of any type currently in service.[1]. A Chinese shipyard has delivered an ultra-large ore carrier (VLOC) designed to transport iron ore between Brazil and China. Peter Sand adds:” The average size of a converted VLOC is 275,000 DWT. This was seen as a move against the Chinese officials who have not allowed the 400,000-ton ships to dock in Chinese ports.

The new Valemax ships, expected to cut the company's transportation costs by 20–25%,[143] were blamed for driving down the freight rates for the entire industry, swelling the already oversupplied bulk transportation market and stalling the recovery of the shipping business after the financial crisis. Although another vessel was expected to take delivery later that year, only one ship was delivered. [67] The Valemax ships ordered by China Merchants Energy Shipping would be built by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (4 ships), Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding (4 ships), and China Merchants Group-controlled China Merchants Heavy Industry (Jiangsu) (2 ships). The Chinese shipbuilder's ability to deliver any of the very large ore carriers ordered by Vale in time was doubted already before the first ship was built. [74], In December 2016, the Japanese shipping company NS United ordered a single 400,000 DWT very large ore carrier from Japan Marine United after signing a 25-year contract with Vale. The partially loaded ship docked at the port of Lianyungang en route from the Vale transshipment hub in Subic Bay, Philippines. (37,674 ships) during the year. A few short years ago (ok maybe 15 years) there were four ship sizes Handy size, handymax, Panamax and Capesize Here is my take on the current sizes and appropriate terminology Very Large Ore Carrier VLOC 210,000 metric tonne dwt (deadweight) Capesize 120,000-209,999 dwt ; Post-Panamax 85,000-119,999 dwt ; Panamax 65,000-84,999 dwt ; Handymax 40,000-64,999 dwt ; Handysize 10,000-39,999 … [129] With a deadweight tonnage of about 400,000 tons, a fully laden Valemax vessel is carrying as much iron ore as around 11,150 trucks, enough to produce steel for three Golden Gate bridges. [89], On 31 January 2012, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China officially banned dry bulk carriers with capacity exceeding 300,000 tons from entering Chinese ports in order to protect the domestic freight industry. While the Wakashio was this year’s most high profile casualty there were plenty of other ship write-offs making headlines such as the Stellar Banner VLOC, which grounded off … Malaccamax is the term used for largest size of ship which is capable of passing through the Strait of Malacca. In March 2016, it was reported that the last of the original 35 Valemax vessels to be built had been sold for just $16.8 million. The Stellar Unicorn and Stellar Queen also sustained hull cracks. However, at the time the Chinese officials had not yet lifted the ban for fully laden Valemax vessels. The VLOC Stellar Daisy foundered in March 2017 with the lost of all hands possibly due to improper cargo handling.

[70][71] The first of the thirty Chinese-built second-generation Valemax vessels, Yuan He Hai, was delivered on 11 January 2018[72][73] and the last one of the series, Yuan Qian Hai, in January 2020. The giant ships are divided into seven holds, each with a capacity of around 58,000 tonnes of iron ore. Dimensions are 360 metres length and 65 metres beam, while they will require some 24 metres of water depth in order to float. [151][152] The transshipment operations ended in 2017 and both Ore Fabrica and Ore Sossego were sold for scrap. Valemax-class ships are very large ore carriers (VLOC) owned or chartered by the Brazilian mining company Vale S.A.

The ships built by DSME and STX in South Korea are powered by 7-cylinder MAN B&W 7S80ME-C8 and 7S80ME-C engines, respectively, and the ships built by RSHI and Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry have Wärtsilä 7RT-flex82T and 7RT-flex84T engines, respectively. Prior to this, only one of the new very large ore carrier chartered by Vale, Berge Everest, had unloaded Brazilian iron ore at a Chinese port – the ship arrived at Dalian on 28 December 2011 – but this was assumed to be a bureaucratic fluke as no Chinese port has regulatory approval to receive dry bulk carriers of that size. The main iron ore ports in the world in Australia, South America, South Africa and Canada are sufficiently deep to enable these Capesized vessels to load, and the terminal equipment is sized for their dimensions. [118], After the incident, the China Shipowners' Association (CSA) questioned the safety of the 400,000-ton ore carriers commissioned by Vale. [9], The second RSHI-built Valemax ship for Vale (Vale Dongjiakou) was delivered on 9 April 2012,[10] the third (Vale Dalian) on 20 May,[11] the fourth (Vale Hebei) on 28 September,[12] the fifth (Vale Shandong) on 7 December 2012,[13] the sixth (Vale Jiangsu) on 23 March 2013,[14] the seventh (Vale Caofeidian) on 22 July 2013,[15] the eighth (Vale Lianyungang) on 22 November 2013,[16] the ninth (Ore Majishan; renamed before delivery) on 11 July 2014,[17] the tenth (Ore Tianjin; renamed before delivery) on 18 October 2014,[18] and the eleventh (Ore Rizhao; renamed before delivery) on 15 December 2014.

[113] Vale Beijing remained anchored off Ponta da Madeira with a crawler crane on the deck and an oceangoing tug standing by[114] until 19 February 2012, when it left São Luís for Oman. [150] This backup plan was criticized by the vice-executive chairman of the CSA, Zhang Shouguo, who called it "waste of resource" and questioned Vale's ability to run the fleet as properly as professional shipping companies. As part of the agreement, the Chinese shipping company will construct 10 new very large ore carriers to transport iron ore from Brazil to China. [91] According to the Ningbo Port Company, the construction of the new port facilities would take two to three years, causing further delays for Vale which in the meantime is losing $2–3 per ton of ore due to the ban. With a maximum draught of between 22 and 23 metres (72 and 75 ft) while loaded, the ships are limited only to a few deepwater ports in Brazil, Europe and China.

Containers were lost by MAERSK ESSEN en route from Xiamen to Los Angeles, the ship took a sharp turn southeast after crossing this area. [45] Both MAN and Wärtsilä engines will have a maximum continuous rating of around 29,000 kW (39,000 hp) when turning the 10-metre (33 ft) propeller at 76–78 rpm, giving the ships a service speed of around 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph) while burning almost 100 tons of heavy fuel oil per day. [154], China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company (COSCO), Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China, Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute, DSME delivering Vale Brasil, the world's largest ore carrier, China Set to Deliver Two Mega-ships to Vale. [134], Like most modern bulk carriers, Valemax vessels are powered by a single two-stroke low-speed crosshead diesel engine directly coupled to a fixed-pitch propeller. [6][7] Although it was expected that the first Chinese-built Valemax vessel would call a Chinese port on its maiden voyage,[8] the ship was diverted to the new transshipment hub Vale had constructed in Philippines. The vessel is en route to PHE, sailing at a speed of 11.5 knots and expected to arrive there on Dec 14, 01:00.. [53] While both of the two remaining ships were supposed to be delivered by the end of 2013, only Vale Maranhao entered service on 29 August. Panamax Dimensions. Size matters and scale economies count in every form of shipping, and it makes a lot of sense in the dry bulk trades, where enormous quantities of iron ore need to be carried on extended ocean passages from ports near where ore is mined, to those near the steel mills that will use the cargo.
