Record handling by Tuticorin Port

Tuticorin Port has created a new record in cargo handling on New Year day (Jan 1) by unloading 13,811 metric tonnes of MOP in bulk at berth no 3 from the vessel MV IVS Kanda on a single day.

The previous record discharge of MOP was 10,431 MT on 2 July 2006 from the vessel Jin Fu. The new record was created by complementing the discharge by using three powerful Port TRF grab cranes from the vessel for all the three shifts.

The steamer agent of the vessel is Pearl Shipping Agency, Tuticorin, and the stevedores are Raja Agencies, Tuticorin. The cargo is meant for Indian Potash Ltd.
