Baffinland’s Mary River iron mine in Canada recently received its first-ever Capesize call from M/V Hauke Oldendorff, which is the largest type of vessel in the world, measuring 50 meters across and 300 meters in length. These enormous vessels are too large to navigate through famous canals like the Suez and Panama canals. The vessel that visited the mine, owned by German company Oldendorff, docked at the Milne Inlet port, where it loaded 165,000 metric tons of iron ore bound for Rotterdam, Netherlands. The mine is expecting four more Capesize vessels to visit this season. The arrival of the first Capesize vessels required over two years of planning and preparation.
