Base Resources 100th Ilmentite shipment

Celebrating 100th vessel

Our business partner Base Resources have just achieved an impressive landmark in their supply of Ilmenite to the Chinese market.  They say that their ‘… Kwale operation in Kenya has just completed the loading of its 100th bulk vessel at the Likoni port facility near Mombasa.  The Triton Valk, carrying just over 53,000 tonnes of ilmenite to our Chinese customers, sailed from Likoni on Sunday 3rd November 2019.  Since our first bulk vessel, the African Eagle, loaded in February 2014 we have loaded 100 bulk vessels without a single incident or safety issue and with no un-planned demurrage.’

Wogen have cargo on board this vessel and, as always, we look forward to supplying this to our customers.  Base continue: ‘we look forward to continuing a close and mutually-rewarding relationship long into the future.’

Well done Base Resources, we at Wogen congratulate you on this important milestone.
