Chilean port commends NYK
The Port of Iquique Port Authority in Chile has issued a commendation to NYK Line in appreciation of rescue activities involving NYK vessels.
The award was presented to Yukio Mitsuma, NYK Sudamerica (Chile) general manager, by Iquique Harbor Master Arturo Mar'n.
The commendation stems from incidents that occurred last March and August. In the first rescue, crewmembers from the NYK car carrier Orion Diamond rescued four Peruvian fishermen whose boat had been drifting for three days of the northern Chilean coast. Then in August, crewmembers from the NYK containership Jandavid S rescued three Chilean fishermen that had also been adrift in the same area for three days.
