New Krishnapatnam Port Records

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Krishnapatnam Port achieved a record discharge rate of 42,527 MT of coal in 24 hrs for vessel MV Marina berthed on Jan. 24, 2010.  A few days prior to that, the port achieved its highest fertilizer discharge rate of 21,200 MT in 24 hrs for vessel MV Ghent Trader on Dec. 26, 2009. Another record was set when port has loaded 5,340 MT of granite within 24 hrs in the vessel MV Yong Sheng on Jan. 15, 2010. All these records were achieved by using the non-mechanized cargo handling system.

Krishnapatnam port has added three more shore cranes, thus owning a total of seven shore cranes. As part of on-going development, a new berth is now opened for operations and the permissible drafts at the port are increased to attract bigger vessels. Mechanized cargo handling system will be operational in July 2010 and will provide iron ore load rate of 80,000 MT / day and coal discharges rate of 50,000 MT / day.
