MV Celtica HAV

MV Celtic HAV

We recently welcomed the MV Celtica HAV to the Port of Brightlingsea on Saturday, November 12th, 2023. She was delivering 2081.250 BB Cement for our client Essex Cement from Figueira da Foz in Portugal.

As far as fixes go, this was very straightforward except for one issue: a member of the crew had injured their finger on arrival. As Uniconnection CSA believes in delivering that extra, we personally arranged to take the crew member to the local walk-in centre/hospital to ensure they got the care they needed. After a 4 hour wait and then transportation to another hospital for an operation the next day, the crew member was returned just before sailing. It’s all about that extra support when required, and Uniconnection certainly does this!
