MV Cheshire Arrives in Spain’s Motril Port

Bibby Line’s troubled bulk carrier MV Cheshire was cleared to enter the Spanish Port of Motril on September 13, where it could soon start cargo discharging operations.

The bulker, which experienced elevated temperatures in its cargo holds on August 12, arrived outside Puerto Motril, South Spain, at 9 am local time. Following an inspection by the port authorities, the ship was allowed to enter the port at 1 pm.

Bibby Line said it hopes to begin discharge of the cargo from the 56,597 dwt vessel “in the coming days.”

“Any plans for the repair to the vessel will wait until the cargo has been discharged and a more thorough inspection can take place,” the company informed.

MV Cheshire, which was loaded with a full cargo of fertiliser, was on passage from Norway to Thailand to discharge when it experienced issues.

The vessel was scheduled to stop in Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to take on bunkers, however, it was rerouted due to the lack of suitable facilities. MV Cheshire has been under tow by tug Red Sea Fos since September 3.
