Hutchison Ports FCP demonstrated its concern for the health and welfare of the local community with a recent donation to Us TOO Grand Bahama.
The generous donation from Hutchison Ports FCP helped the organization to provide the invaluable service of prostate cancer screening to hundreds of men at an affordable cost.
Weeks after acquiring its new Super Post Panamax cranes, Hutchison Ports FCP welcomed the largest vessel to ever call at the facility.
The MSC Shreya B, a 12,000 teu (twenty-foot equivalent unit) vessel, called at the port recently, opening the door to a new scale of business. The vessel was able to call at the port due to the capacity of the high tech, remote-controlled cranes to accommodate the world’s largest vessels.
“This is the first 12,000 teu vessel to visit our terminal, said Container Port Director, Lucian Laing.
Hutchison Ports FCP has made its contribution to the anticipated success of the 2019 Grand Bahama New Year’s Day Junkanoo parade. The company made a recent donation to Classic Dancers, a local group slated to compete in the event.
The group’s Chairman, Jonestoe Thomas, thanked FCP for what he called a “timely” donation.
“The donation will help us in preparation for the 2019 New Year’s Day Junkanoo parade,” he explained.
“It will be used to help us buy the much needed materials for our costumes so we can put on a spectacular presentation on the streets of Grand Bahama, for Grand Bahamians to enjoy the New Year’s parade.”
