Metal waste is exported in Malta and from time to time, ships call at Grand Harbour, Malta berthing at Laboratory Wharf South 2 for loading scrap iron bound to Turkey.
Another interesting shipment was seen in June 2021 when on Monday 7th June, 2021 the 88 metre long Luxembourg Flag (LUX) but Norwegian owned ship WILSON AVILES entered Grand Harbour at 1024 hrs coming from Bari, Italy.
She was built in Slovakia by Slovenske Lodenice A.S as HERO OMKEN for few months and then renamed as WILSON AVILES homeported at Valletta (MLT Flag) until 2018.
Once she was secured at her berth at Laboratory Wharf South 2 she started loading.
In 2018 her homeport was changed to Luxembourg (LUX) as it can be clearly seen below –
She left Valletta on Thursday 10th June at 2004 hrs bound to Turkey.
