Port of Vancouver USA Welcomes MV Alam Sinar on Her Maiden Voyage

The Port of Vancouver USA welcomed the M/V Alam Sinar commanded by Capt. Arturo A. Lobigas of the Philippines on her maiden voyage to the United States on Feb. 11, 2014.

Lobigas and his 19-member Filipino crew were welcomed to Vancouver by representatives from Pacific Northwest Ship and Cargo, and Port of Vancouver USA.

The ClassNK bulk carrier was built in Japan in 2014. The M/V Alam Sinar is owned by Grace Ocean Private Limited and operated by Malaysian Bulk Carrier. The vessel is 579 feet (176.5 meters) in length and has a deadweight capacity of 36,320 tons.

Before docking at the Port of Vancouver, the M/V Alam Sinar sailed from Takamatsu, Japan, then to the Port of Vancouver USA where she loaded approximately 6,000 metric tons of copper concentrate. The vessel will travel to Vancouver, B.C. and Campbell River, then to Akita and Nihama, Japan before its final stop at Isabel, in the Philippines.
