The Port of Vancouver USA welcomed the Nord Geranium, commanded by Capt. Kim Aarup of Denmark, on her first voyage to the United States July 29.

Capt. Aarup and his 22-member Danish and Filipino crew were welcomed to Vancouver by Aaron Flett, terminal manager with NuStar Energy Corporation, Gary Martinke, vessel agent with Inchcape Shipping Services and Mike Schiller, business development manager for the Port of Vancouver.

The July 29 visit in Vancouver was the Nord Geranium’s maiden voyage, after being launched on June 25, 2014.

The tanker was built in China in 2014, and is owned and operated by Norden A/S Dampskibsselskabet. The vessel is 601 feet long and has a deadweight capacity of 39,826 metric tons.

The Nord Geranium arrived at the Port of Vancouver USA from Mailiao, Taiwan. Once at the port, she discharged approximately 20,000 tons of sodium hydroxide, more commonly known as lye. Sodium hydroxide is used in many industries, including as a base in the manufacture of pulp and paper, textiles, soaps and detergents.

After discharging the sodium hydroxide at the port, the Nord Geranium departed for Long Beach, California where she will discharge additional cargo.
