Chennai, India, January 23, 2017: Global trade enabler DP World operated Chennai Container Terminal has achieved another breakthrough with the recently upgraded infrastructure. The Terminal hosted CMA CGM MOZART with a draft of 14.8 metres.


The newly deepened depth at the terminal has led to the port achieving notable milestones. The first vessel to have been berthed at the newly dredged draft was M. V. CMA CGM Rossini, as a part of the weekly service ‘NEMO’. Following this, the container vessel CMA CGM Bellini with a draft of 14.6 metres berthed at the terminal. The berthing of these vessels at the terminal is a testament to the facilities available at DP World Chennai, as also to the efforts and commitment by the Port authority in improving the marine infrastructure at Chennai Port.


Commenting on the development, Mr. K. K. Krishnadas, Chief Executive Officer, DP World Chennai said, “At DP World, we seek to provide value in everything we do for customers, business partners and shareholders. We have been working closely with the port trust to strengthen the existing infrastructure at the port. The newly dredged draft has successfully attracted three large vessels at the port. We hope to continue this success while delivering world class service to our clients.”
