The Rolldock Star loaded two FMCs in Pensacola, FL in May 2015. The ship arrived in Pensacola several days before the scheduled load date in order to prepare the vessel’s cargo space for the voyage.
The FMCs were delivered to the ship from the pier by two local tug boats chartered by Rolldock. After a one day loading operation the vessel went to the pier in Pensacola to complete sea fastenings to the specifications of the charterers. After the ocean voyage from Pensacola to Alexandria the FMCs were floated off and delivered to the Egyptian Navy at a site approximately 25 km from the discharge location by tugs charterered by Rolldock.
