CSN Iron Ore Terminal Not Operating after Accident

Posted by April 19, 2017

The loading of iron ore at Brazil's Itaguaí terminal operated by mining and steel firm Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional, or CSN, have been halted since Saturday due to an accident, sources and the Itaguaí Port Authority told Reuters on Wednesday.
 
Some Capesize bulk carriers that were waiting to load iron ore at the terminal are being put back into the charter market, said a German shipping source, due to the impossibility to load the product in Brazil. CSN confirmed the accident, but had no immediate information regarding Itaguaí operations.
