Maiden Voyage to Lyttelton
The arrival at Lyttelton of a vessel on her maiden voyage is a rare and noteworthy occasion.
The Handysize Nord Singapore will berth on the Eastern side of the old ferry wharf on the 26th of April 2008.
The 31,800 ton bulk dry cargo carrier was launched in Japan in March and is 167.76 metres in length.
Before departing on the 28th the vessel will unload Tapioca pellets from Thailand, a supplement in pasture based dairy cattle rations.
