JNPT handles largest ship to ever call in India
DP World-operated Nhava Sheva (India) Gateway Terminals at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust on Friday hosted the MSC Cristina, reportedly the largest container ship ever to call Indian shores. The 2011-built Cristina is about 366 meters (approximately 1,201 feet) long and has a capacity to carry up to 13,102 twenty-foot-equivalent units, the Dubai-based company said in a press statement. That makes the Cristina larger than the 11,000-TEU MSC Francesca serviced by NSIGT on March 18. “Our latest terminal to start operations in India, NSIGT is the only futuristic terminal at Jawaharlal Nehru Port with essential state-of-the-art facilities to handle vessels of this caliber. This reinforces our position as the leading container terminal operator in India,” DP World Subcontinent Senior Vice President and Managing Director Anil Singh said, speaking at a port event to celebrate the Cristina call. The mega-ship calls follow on the heels of JNPT completing a dredging project that deepened its channel depth to 14 meters (46 feet). http://www.joc.com/port-news/asian-ports/port-jawaharlal-nehru/jnpt-handles-largest-ship-ever-call-india_20160401.htmlUpload News
