IVS KANDA – a small ship
I caught this picture of the iron ore carrier IVS KANDA today. It is a relatively small ship in regard to what the usual tonnage of the carriers that come to Narvik usually are. IVS KANDA is from Singapore, she is going to take on iron ore at pier No 5 bound for Rostock. Right now she has been waiting in port for 11 days to get the load. It is quite busy here now with lots of carriers anchored up all around the fjord and harbor bassin. IVS KANDA is just 32,621 DWT, which is just 1/8 the size of the bigger ships coming in here to load up with the fines iron ore in the world.
So next time you thunder down the highway in your new car or you’re frying some meat in your frying pan, maybe they are made from steel that IVS KANDA transported from Narvik this cold and windy february in 2012.
