        受全球疫情影响,巴西铁矿石巨头淡水河谷(Vale)表示其正考虑暂时关停马来西亚物流中心——Teluk Rubiah Maritime Terminal(以下简称TRMT)。
 
        TRMT在2019年共转运2370万吨铁矿石,可能会从3月21日起停运至3月31日。
 
        与此同时,马来西亚正在采取措施限制国内的各项活动以抗击新冠疫情。马来西亚已经禁止出入境旅游并关闭国内学校、企业直到三月底。
 
        淡水河谷表示:“淡水河谷正在与相关部门协商,以明确政府在城际交通上的各项限制措施,这会限制淡水河谷的员工前往TRMT上班。”
 
        “在这种情况下,驶往TRMT的船舶会重新定向,并被分配到我们在中国的混矿港口。预计不会影响到今年整体的生产和销售规模,但对2020年第一季度销售量可能会有80万吨的影响。”
 
        本周早些时候,淡水河谷决定关闭加拿大沃伊西湾(Voisey’s Bay)的采矿业务,并进行为期四周的保养维护。

Coronavirus Measures: Vale May Close Iron Ore Terminal in Malaysia
 
Brazilian mining giant Vale said it is considering a temporary halt of its distribution center in Malaysia, Teluk Rubiah Maritime Terminal (TRMT), amid the global coronavirus outbreak.
 
The terminal, which recorded iron ore shipments of 23.7 million tons in 2019, could suspend operations from March 21 to 31.
 
The announcement comes as Malaysia is implementing measures to restrict movement nationwide to fight the COVID-19 spread. Until the end of March, the country has banned travel aboard and closed schools and businesses.
 
“Vale is communicating with the authorities to clarify supposed restrictions imposed by the local government on transportation between cities, what could limit the access of workers to TRMT,” according to the company.
 
“In that scenario, vessels heading to TRMT will be redirected and redistributed among our blending facilities in China with no expected impact on production and sales volume in 2020, but with an impact on sales of approximately 800,000 t in 1Q20.”
 
Earlier this week, Vale also decided to ramp down its Voisey’s Bay mining operation in Canada and place it on care and maintenance for a period of four weeks.
