UAL calling Ascension Island (pictures).
At the end of February 2019, Universal Africa Lines recently had a unique experience of 2 vessels calling Ascension Island simultaneously. This was a premiere for UAL calling this remote Island situated in the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of Brazil and West Africa (Angola).
The ‘’UAL Fortitude’’ loaded containers for the U.S.A. while at the same time the ‘’UAL Bodewes’’ was discharging containers. Seeing no port is available that could accommodate UAL’s vessels, the operations were done under windy circumstances on the roads of Ascension Island, by stevedores who are experienced in working under these tough circumstances.
