The 'Santa Regina' at Belfast
The 'Santa Regina' at Belfast
229m (82,063 DWT) Panamanian flagged bulk carrier 'Santa Regina' LinkExternal link at Belfast. The ship is discharging Russian coal - the majority of recent shipments of coal into Belfast have been to supply nearby Kilroot Power Station but, with this expected to close shortly (see J4388 : Kilroot power station, Carrickfergus - February 2018(1)), it is expected that these will decline. However, a local company has now begun exporting refined coal (see LinkExternal link ) so some coal imports are likely to continue.

Stormont Wharf is now one of the longest deep water quays in Ireland.
