Brazil port moves disabled ore vessel from berth

Tue Dec 6, 2011

RIO DE JANEIRO Dec 6 (Reuters) - The damaged Vale Beijing, the world's largest iron-ore carrier, was being moved from berth in Brazil for repairs, opening up space at a port responsible for about 10 percent of the world's iron ore exports, the harbor pilot's office in Sao Luis said on Tuesday.

The port is operated by Vale , the world's second-largest mining company, which also mined the iron ore that was loaded aboard the vessel.
