Today's SOTD is the Berge Stahl (IMO:8420804, Port of registry: Stavanger, Norway) which is the largest ore carrier currently sailing with her deadweight of 364,767 tons. The vessel is owned by Bergesen Worldwide Shipping and was built in 1992 by Hyundai Heavy Ind. Co. Ltd. Ulsan, Korea. She is 343 meters long, 65 meters wide, has a draught of 23 meters and has 7 holds and hatches. She transports iron ore from the 'Companhia Vale do Rio Doce' mines in the eastern part of the Amazone, Brasil to Rotterdam about 9 or 10 times a year. From Rotterdam the iron ore is transported in barges to the steel mills of ThyssenKrupp and H├╝ttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann in Germany.

The Berge Stahl is scheduled to arrive later this afternoon at the EECV terminal, Rotterdam from Ponta da Madeira, Brasil.
