Krishnapatnam Port claims world record for discharging 122,247 MT's of coal from ship in 24 hrs using conventional cranes.

The cargo was discharged from the MV Cohiba which had 161,980 MT of US Coal on account of JSW Steels Limited. The remaining 39,733 MT of coal was due to be dishcarged the following day by the saime mobile harbor cranes.

The port claims this to be by far the highest amount of coal that has  ever been lifted from a vessel in any part of the world and represents a remarkable achievement considering the port’s previous record that was set a year ago (on July 23, 2011) for discharging 106,171 MT of steam coal.

The port’s commitment in offering superior customer satisfaction was also recognized when it recently won the ‘Non Major Port Award’ at the South East CEO Conclave & Awards 2012 organized by EXIM India – Shipping Times.
