Berge Tai Shan
Named after one of the Five Great Mountains in China, Tai Shan is associated with sunrise, birth, and renewal.
This magnificent vessel – built at Bohai (CSIC) shipyard in China – adds a further 215,000 DWT to Berge Bulk’s safe and energy efficient fleet. Together with her sister ship Berge Heng Shan (216,461 DWT), these Berge Bulk vessels are currently the largest bulk carriers in the world. In a single voyage they carry enough iron ore to build three Sydney Harbour bridges. The series of Berge Bulk new builds marks a significant design milestone, pushing the boundaries in terms of capacity and efficiency.
Berge Tai Shan sails under the flag of Isle of Man. She is running on a 10-year contract between Port Hedland in Australia and China.
