In a major achievement, the JNPA has played host to the longest-ever visitor it has ever had — a 399-meter cargo vessel, an official reported on Saturday.
The 54-meter-wide cargo ship, MSC Hamburg that, has been flying the flag of Panama, boasts a capacity of 16,652 TEUs and a draught of 14 meters, which is berthed at the
JNPA safely at about 11.25 am, becoming the longest vessel to have called at any port in India.
Built-in 2015, the MSC Hamburg set sail from its port of origin, Sri Lanka’s Colombo, on a planned and well-executed voyage, sailing almost 1,750 km to JNPA per schedule.
Delighted by the arrival of the long-fellow, Sanjay Sethi, JNPA Chair, said that the port plays a vital role in improving global supply chains and the arrival of MSC Hamburg has bolstered the capabilities of the port in catering to the evolving trade demands across the continents.
The arrival of the MSC Hamburg marks a major milestone in establishing JNPA as a global hub for maritime excellence and also reaffirms the position not merely as a key player worldwide, but underlines dedication to fostering more strengthened partnerships and facilitating efficient operations, explained Sethi.
To commemorate the occasion, Sethi, with Shri Unmesh Sharad Wagh, JNPA’s Deputy Chair U.S., Balasaheb Pawar, Deputy Conservator, and Girish Thomas, the GM, presented a plaque to MSC Hamburg’s Master.
