Höegh Delhi First to Use New Mumbai Terminal

Höegh Delhi, the 200m long and 6 000-vehicle-capacity pure car and truck carrier, was the first call to the new Indira Container Terminal (ICT) in Mumbai on November 26.

The successful trial berthing opens opportunities for the commencement of regular vessel calls at the terminal. The automobile manufacturers can benefit from more calls and expeditious loading, accommodating their consistent growth in exports whereas the shipping line would be able to offer dedicated scheduled services with faster turnarounds, simultaneously relieving the pressure of congestion at Mumbai Port Trust’s other berths.

The trial berthing at the ICT was successfully performed by MV Höegh Delhi thanks to close coordination between Mumbai Port, ICTPL , Höegh Autoliners and Merchant shipping Services Pvt ltd. The berth is a 700 metre long and 58 metre wide quay that provides ideal space for vehicles prior loading. The berth matches up well with international standards of a Ro-Ro terminal,” said Karolath Gopinath, Head of Area, Indian Subcontinent at Höegh Autoliners.
