Krishnapatnam Now India's Deepest Port

press release
Thursday, November 17, 2011

Krishnapatnam Port in its quest to be the best port in India has increased its draft to 17.5 meters. With this measure, the port now shares the honor of being the deepest draft port in India along with another port that’s situated on the east coast of India.

 

The port has 3 cutter suction dredgers and 3 trailer suction dredgers that are continuously working round-the-clock undertaking capital and maintenance dredging. In the next two months, the draft will be increased to 18.5 meters making it the deepest draft port in India and in-time will be increased further.

 

Taking advantage of the current draft, a cape vessel ‘MV. Wisdom Of The Sea 1’ chartered for M/s Gupta Coal India Limited, is berthed at the port carrying 166,060 MTs of South African non-coking coal, which is also the largest parcel size of bulk cargo handled by any port in India. Krishnapatnam Port can now easily handle vessels with carrying capacity of 170,000 MTs, benefiting importers and exporters in saving their Ocean Freight. The port also offers high load and discharge rates that are best in the country leading to faster turnaround of vessels. This has been made possible due to its state-of-art infrastructure and other in-house port services. With a customer-centric approach, state-of-art equipments and technology, Krishnapatnam Port is providing world-class services to all its customers.
