Danica has announced it has been entrusted with the crew management of the newbuilding ultramax Port Imabari for Lisbon headquartered Portline Bulk International.

Delivered in January, the 63,500 DWT Port Imabari, equipped with four 30.5 tonnes (SWL) grab cranes, was built at Japan’s Imabari Shipyard. The Marshall Islands-flagged bulk carrier brings Danica’s fleet of crew managed vessels to 23.

Henrik Jensen, Danica Managing Director, said: “We thank the owners for the trust they have shown in us and we appreciate the good cooperation shown by teams in both companies which helped ensure this vessel sailed smoothly into our crew management service.”

The vessel made her maiden voyage from Japan to Vancouver, Canada and crew members sent a photograph to Danica of a snowman they made on deck during the inaugural trip.
