Both locations can be interesting for charterers/traders as they can minimise freight costs and delays due to bad weather. In the recent weeks when OPL Malta was closed for STS due to bad weather, OPL Kalamata was operational every day. Both locations are available all year. OPL Kalamata is a sheltered area and during winter time it is protected from Northeasterly and Northwesterly winds enabling a smooth operation during this period.
Lemnos as a location enables flexibility of movement around the island and offers the proper shelter to undertake STS operations in most weather conditions.
