It’s been a few months since the largest civilian hospital ship mv Global Mercy arrived at the Port of Antwerp, for further equipping before starting her first journey to West Africa.
MV Global Mercy’s arrived on September 12th 2021 in Antwerp from China, since then, our port agency department (AGZ Port Services) offered full assistance to this marvelous project, arranging 54 crew changes, including +- 100 corona-tests (3x different laboratories), quarantine hotels and numerous visa applications.
Service was given to collect bilge-water/sludge, ordering pilots & tugs, coordinating the logistics of frequent (spare)-parts delivery with other local partners. Furthermore, the whole crew was offered vaccination at local Mediport.
We’re happy to be volunteer for this wonderful project, which gives help to the less fortunate. Thumbs up for our agency team and all local Antwerp partners involved, it’s already been a journey.
