Tuesday, February 11, 2014

The container terminal at India's largest port of Nhava Sheva, also known as Jawajarlal Nehru Port near Mumbai, will be partially shut down for six weeks from the beginning of March to install new harbor cranes.

The work in expected to impact normal operating conditions alongside the main container berth and the shallow draft berth. Normal operations are expected to recommence in early May.

The port authority will not be in a position to operate at full capacity, but are making arrangements with affected vessel operators to find alternate solutions.

Shipping lines have been advised to reroute ships to other Indian west coast ports, including Mundra, Pipavav or Hazira.

There are two other terminals working in Nhava Sheva, the NSICT and HTI, which are fully working at this time. Customers may plan shipments on vessels calling at those terminals during this period. Carriers are also finding alternate options to get the window/berth at either of these terminals.

Nhava Sheva port recorded container throughput of 3 million TEU in 2013, equivalent to more than half of India's total box volume.
