April 06th – Upriver

April 06th 2020


In view of the ongoing developing situation and different communications and instructions being issued by Sanitary Authorities of the Argentine Government we have chosen to send a consolidated daily report at the closing of working hours with an update of the day’s news.

-National Holidays: Thursday April 09th and Friday April 10th are National Holidays in Argentina for Easter.

-Upriver: All terminals loading normally and services being rendered usually. Special precautions are being taken by both crews and boarding shore staff.

Antares staff continue attending vessels as always. In order to ensure mutual protection we have taken necessary sanitary precautions for everyone’s safety:

-Upriver, Recalada, Bahia Blanca: Autumn has begun seriously this weekend. Storms coming from mainly South East have caused Recalada pilots to be closed for most of the day and also Bahia Blanca. Both have since reopened.

The port was closed again today, April 06th at 0749 hours due to strong winds and 2.60 meters swell.

Grain Surveyors Union will only work in straight time, 0700/1900 hours and Saturdays 0700/1300 hours.

Will keep you posted.

Best regards,
Antares Servicios Maritimos S.A.
