On 21 August, Grieg Star delivered the 34 year old Star Fuji for recycling. She landed at Leyal Ship Recycling in Aliaga, near Izmir in Turkey. That is the same recycling yard that recycled Star Gran in February.
Star Fuji was an open hatch vessel of 40 850 million DWT. She was hull no 320 from Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan (Korea). Through her 34 and a half year, she has sailed approximately 9000 days. At an average speed of 12 knots, that is 2.5 million nautical miles. Or over 150 times around the world at equator. She has transported 6.2 million t of cargo through her year. The last years, she has been sailing for G2 Ocean.
But as one ship leaves the company, another comes in. On 20 August, GriegMaas received a new supramax, the Star Damon. She was formerly named GH Frankel, and is built in 2012. She is 199 m long, has a beam of 32 m, and a draught at 13.3 m. Star Damon will join the G2 Ocean conventional bulk pool.
