        受全球疫情影响,巴西铁矿石巨头淡水河谷(Vale)表示其已决定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,将至少停运至3月31日。
 
        淡水河谷表示,公司做出这个决定是因为“公司暂时达不到安全运营码头的最低条件。”
 
        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:“驶往TRMT的船舶会重新调度,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50万吨的影响。据预测,额外的物流安排会带来小幅度的成本上升。”
 
        本月早些时候,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 Impact: Vale Temporarily Closes Iron Ore Terminal in Malaysia
 
Brazilian mining giant Vale has decided to temporarily close 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, will suspend operations at least until March 31, 2020.
 
As explained, Vale took this decision as “it is temporarily unable to secure the minimum resources to safely operate the terminal.”
 
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.
 
“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 500,000 t in 1Q20. An immaterial cost increase is expected due to additional logistics,” the company said.
 
Earlier this month, 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.
