Norden Hits Mother Lode in the Philippines

Danish shipping company Dampskibsselskabet Norden A/S has entered into a 10-year contract to transport 20-24 million tons of coal to a power plant on Luzon Island, the Philippines.

The contract is expected to start in the first quarter of 2017. In terms of volume, this makes it the largest contract in the history of Norden, the company said without revealing the value of the contract.

The power plant is operated by GNPower Mariveles Coal Plant Ltd. Co. (GNPower). The plant began its production in 2013, and from the start Norden has transported coal to the plant on behalf of an Indonesian coal producer.

Going forward, Norden will be dealing directly with GNPower as the customer, as the power plant buys the coal from various producers in Indonesia, whereupon it will be sailed to the Philippines by Norden.

The transports will be carried out on Panamax vessels and will involve 25-30 trips a year. Each transport will take approximately 20 days, Norden said.
