A proud event has taken place in the world of Indian ports on 12th February 2023. The deepest ever container ship has been moored at the Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) in Mundra. Adani Port has grown into a flagship of India’s shipping business by berthing MSC Washington. Not only this, this achievement has further cemented Mundra as a state-of-the-art and most developed Indian port.
The deepest container ship MSC Washington was very cautious in anchoring. The port’s marine team, who were in constant touch with the ship’s captain, did a great job. The 1.9 MT vessel was micro-planned before anchoring easily. Also, the team was kept on alert to avoid any kind of mistake in the operation. The entire team successfully completed the operation under the leadership of Captain Sachin Srivastava.
MSC Washington berthed at Mundra Port is the deepest container ship ever in Indian ports, Captain says. The marine team carried out the necessary clearance to bring the vessel to a safe berth keeping in mind all the critical circumstances and weather conditions.
Adani Port Mundra can easily and safely accommodate such heavy vessels. This wadhu is an important landmark for Adani Port. MSC Washington LNG is a dual-fuel 14K TE ultra large container vessel, equipped with an LNG fuel gas supply system by C-LNG Solutions. APL Raffles, one of the largest vessels with a capacity of 17,292 containers, was anchored last year. Adani Port has world-class facilities of 26 berths and two single-point moorings with an annual cargo handling capacity of 248.82 MMT with well-equipped tunnels for Vivadh cargo and commodities.
As India’s largest private port, Adani Port Mundra has emerged as the gateway of choice for EXIM cargo, agricultural products and miscellaneous goods. Adani Port Mundra aims to become one of the top ten ports in the world in view of the ever-increasing cargo volume.
