Vale performed one more testing stage of north berth of Pier IV, located in Ponta da Madeira Maritime Terminal (TMPM), in São Luís (MA). This time, the Capesize-type Cape Asia ship was loaded with 160 thousand tons of iron ore. The vessel moved on October 14th, bound for India. It is expected that, after completion of operational testing, scheduled for November, the north berth of Pier IV is able to start the operation. The work is part of S11D, the largest project in the history of Vale and which will enter commercial operation in January 2017.
